4.0 out of 5 stars Applause for author Peter Richardson, March 3, 2006
By 
This review is from: American Prophet: The Life and Work of Carey McWilliams (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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best California read of the 1920s to the early 1950's., April 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: American Prophet: The Life and Work of Carey McWilliams (Hardcover)
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.
