Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Another venerable journal surveys its history in this sampling of political commentary from Partisan Review. From the Marxist but anti-Communist Left, founding fathers William Phillips and Philip Rahv and a variety of contributors have critiqued their world from mid-Depression to the present. Kurzweil has selected several dozen items, including reportage, opinion pieces, and editorials that capture the intensity of debate within the New York intellectual establishment. Authors include Gide, Trotsky, Spender, Macdonald, Howe, Mailer, the Trillings, Arendt, and McCarthy. The first pieces were published in 1937; the last, in 1994. Including several classic essays (Baldwin on the South in 1959; Sontag defining "camp"), this is a valuable slice of intellectual life. Mary Carroll --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


This collection is full of plums--pieces that have become classics of political and social writing. To have them all together is wonderfully useful. I kept turning the pages and thinking: 'So there you are, nice to see you again.' I do recommend this book.

(Doris Lessing)
