Let the Record Speak
Let the Record Speak
By Dorothy Thompson
Houghton, 1939, 410 pp.

In this book Miss Thompson has assembled a number of her best New York Herald Tribune "columns" published over the last three years, and several of her speeches and broadcasts. Reading them over, one is struck by her power to separate the grain from the chaff in the day's news, to give her comments historical perspective, and to show flashes of prophetic vision. Indeed, her present compilation, like Winston Churchill's recent books, is something in the nature of an "I told you so."
