Picks and Pans Review: Walter Lippmann and the American Century
by Ronald Steel
For more than 50 years Walter Lippmann walked the corridors of power as journalist, as statesman and as unique combination of both. Is it possible to make, say, Lippmann's falling-out with President Wilson over the Treaty of Versailles as fascinating as his love affair with the wife of his best friend, Hamilton Fish Armstrong? It is. In a massive book, Steel skillfully interweaves the public and private Lippmanns, illuminating American history as well as its extraordinary chronicler. (Atlantic-Little, Brown, $19.95)
