Summary: Howe, a historian and critic of formidable intellect who has written extensively on politics (particularly socialism), literature, and history for 40 years, here shows how effectively he has mastered the trick of capturing recent literary and political events. These representative essays are densely crafted and display a virtuosity in their respective and often conjoined subject areas, which range from T.E. Lawrence to Ronald Reagan, anarchy to styles in leftism, and Robert Frost to Louis-Ferdinand Celine. The longer pieces, which provide extensive background and analysis, are the most effective. Their difficulty varies, but these essays require an earnest reader; academic and large public libraries would benefit from this collection. --Janice Braun, Medical Historical Lib., Yale Univ.
