Isidor Feinstein Stone (December 24, 1907 – June 18, 1989) was an independent American journalist who criticized the fallacies of politicians and others.
At 14 he began his own small monthly newspaper, worked for newspapers when in high school and college and went on to become a renowned investigative journalist and author.
This 1953 book contains thematically arranged essays from the several papers and magazines Stone wrote for during 1945 to 1952. It is a contemporary history as recorded day by day, with the urgency of a diary and the charm of the familiar essay.
It has the added value of being inscribed by the author.
