Fighting Years: Memoirs of a Liberal Editor

By Oswald Garrison Villard

Harcourt, 1939, 543 pp.

For many years Mr. Villard has been one of America's leading liberal journalists and editors, connected first with the New York Evening Post and later with the Nation. Though born to wealth and position, he has put much of his life at the service of the underprivileged. In this unassuming but passionately partisan autobiography he recounts the experiences of his varied and active life at home and abroad. Several of them shed new light on historical events.
