Reviews

"It's a great delight to see this key chapter in the history of American journalism at last get the readable, judicious history it deserves." --Adam Hochschild, author of Half the Way Home and Bury the Chains

"Richardson tells Ramparts' story in jaunty prose . . . with delightful anecdotes." --Chicago Sun-Times

"Richardson has peppered his account with lively comments, most of them from reporters who cut their eyeteeth in newspapers long before the 1960s." --San Francisco Chronicle

"An excellent history that shouldn't be ignored." --Douglas Brinkley, author of The Wilderness Warrior
