Description - The Best of I.F. Stone by I. F. Stone
This is the collection of the essential writings of Izzy Stone, the hard-charging, iconoclastic journalist whose work is shockingly relevant to our times. Izzy Stone was a reporter, a radical, an idealist, a scholar and, it is clear, a writer whose insights have more than stood the test of time. More than fifteen years after his death, this collection of work from "IF Stone's Weekly" and elsewhere is astonishing in its relevance to our age, addressing the clash between national security and individual liberty, the protection of minorities, economic fairness, social justice and the American military abroad. The core of Stone's genius was his newsletter, "IF Stone's Weekly", published from the mid-1950's to the early 1970s. His meticulous dissection of the news was unsurpassed, a direct descendent of the great pamphleteers like Thomas Paine, and a forerunner to the best of today's political blogs. Stone's brilliant investigative reporting, his wonderful impassioned style, and his commitment to his values, will make this collection an inspiration and a revelation.
