MEDIA REVIEWS
A stunning mix of anecdote and sharp personal glimpses...a summing-up, proud and sometimes chastened, of old battles and the transforming enthusiasm of an extraordinary time. The book is a treasury of anecdotes of great men seen by their young helpers... Beyond the anecdotes and the personalities, there are the dynamics of the time, its panics, enthusiasm, inspirations and its fumblings.--Richard Eder "Los Angeles Times "
These sparkling firsthand accounts from the young members of the New Deal team--Alger Hiss, Robert C. Weaver, Paul A. Freund, James H. Rowe, Wilbur J. Cohen, Abe Fortas, David Riesman, Joseph L. Rauh, and 38 others--form a vivid and unusual chronicle of that 'yeasty, exciting time.' How it takes you back to the days when government was trying to govern! More than mere reminiscences, this is a newly informative, moving, and in view of present-day contrasts, a heart-rending book.--Barbara Tuchman
