Essays On A Half-Century: Ideas, Policies, And Action
Essays On A Half-Century: Ideas, Policies, And Action
By Walt W. Rostow
Westview Press, 1988, 190 pp.

Essays, articles and speeches over some forty years, introduced by an autobiographical report done for the 50th reunion of the class of 1936 at Yale. In general the pieces follow themes for which the author is known from his major works and his public career, but some take the reader, with benefit, off that beaten track. The book should be welcomed by fans of Walt Rostow and all who appreciate a sharp and fertile mind.
