A Generation on Trial

By Alistair Cooke
Knopf, 1950
342 pp. $3.50

The American correspondent of the Manchester Guardian reports on the Hiss case from the first accusation to the conviction. The author does not attempt to unravel the past or inner lives of the principals but delivers some very penetrating, and British, observations on the American political scene, the mores of our press, and our trial system.
