Format: Hardcover
Applause for author Peter Richardson for his prodigous research and enlightening prose. Carey McWilliams, possibly more than any other person, influenced hot button social and governance issues in California and America during the mid-1900s. If one really wants to know what a multi-talented activist can achieve, "American Prophet" is a must read!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kevin Starr is not the only person who can write about California and Californians. I have bought ten copies of this book. Everyone who has read it comes back to thank me. The best take on California from the 20s up to the 50s and it doesn't stop there. Do yourself a favor and buy a couple of copies for you too will start giving them away.
