In This Review

By Joseph Barnes
Simon and Schuster, 1952, 405 pp

A political biography by a newspaperman who accompanied Willkie on his world tour in 1942. Because of his remarkable development as a public figure and because he left behind comparatively little written documentation of his views, Willkie is a difficult subject to treat. Mr. Barnes, however, has done a commendable job in recreating the vividness, the "hoarse urgency" of the late presidential candidate.
