Listing Detail Tabs

Hertzberg has to be the preeminent political writer of our time. His writing is always witty and urbane, but also packs a political punch. Thankfully, he doesn't delve into the depths like many political writers at the moment. Instead, he relies on the facts and his wit to make his points, and respects the intelligence of his readers.

This book is an impressive archive of Hertzberg's writing over the past 40 years. Most of the book consists of his writing in the 1980s for "The New Republic" and his more recent pieces for "The New Yorker."

His articles are organized into a variety of sections, from "Enough About the Sixties" (the hippies and classic rock), "Great Men," (articles on Carter, Reagan, and RFK), to "Judeo-Christians," "Wingers," "Wedge Issues," and "The Wayward Media."

This book is a treasure trove of wit and wisdom, and contains much of interest about recent political history reading it.
