Politics: Observations & Arguments

Author(s): Hendrik Hertzberg


Here at last are Hendrik Hertzbergas most significant, hilarious, and devastating dispatches from the American scene he has chronicled for four decades with an uncanny blend of moral seriousness, high spirits, and perfect rhetorical pitch. Arranged thematically, each section contains the choicest, most illuminating pieces from his body of work and begins with a new piece of writing that frames the subject at hand. A tour of the defining moments of American life from the mid-a60s to the mid- a00s, "Politics" is at once the story of American life from LBJ to GWB and a testament to the power of the written word.
