U.S.A. The Overlook Press, 2008. First Edition, First Printing. Fine Hardcover in a Fine Dust Jacket.
Over fifty years of reportage on American life by one of the 20th century's greatest broadcasters for nearly sixty years, Alistair Cooke reported on American life for the BBC.
Reporting America is a fascinating account of history in the making. His beloved radio show, Letter from America, saw eleven presidents, four wars, and an incredible shift in culture. He adored the U.S. as only a naturalized citizen could, and his reports were incisive and often moving.
Cooke traveled extensively all over the United States to convey the views of citizens in all the nuances of regional opinion as well as those of the presidents and policy makers to whom he had easy access.
No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal retail/shelf handling; Still Gift Quality.
