Walter Lippmann (1889-1974) was the author of many books on political thought and was widely considered America’s most distinguished syndicated columnist. In addition to being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he won two Pulitzer Prizes for his newspaper column “Today and Tomorrow,” which appeared in the New YorkHerald Tribune.
Michael Curtis is distinguished professor emeritus of political science at Rutgers University. He is the author of numerous books, including Israel in the Third World, Antisemitism in the Contemporary World, Orientalism and Islam, and Should Israel Exist?: A Sovereign Nation under Attack by the International Community.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Lippmann's style may be difficult for some, but those who endeavour to read will find it fascinating.
One thing to keep in mind when ordering: this book has been reprinted numerous times by a variety of publishers with results of varying quality.
Lippmann dealt in an interdisciplinary method that is extremely rare, if not structurally impossible, in today's academic environment.
