author of "Now It Can Be ToldPresents an arresting picture of the world today



[ocr errors]

With the brilliance of the greatest of living journalists and with the sincerity of
a witness and prophet, Philip Gibbs paints in this book the world that was, the
agony it went through, and the things we must face if we are to save the future.
Particularly valuable is his analysis of the factors that menace present and
future. No detail escapes him, from the Dawes Report to the Ku Klux Klan;
both the countries of Europe and America are held in his world-view.
Here is no confusing clutter of day-by-day journalism, but a perspective on all
the difficult problems the world faces today. Yet there is something beyond this
lucidity and grasp; there is the profound emotion, the passion for truth that
so distinguished "The Middle of the Road" and "Now It Can Be Told."

No one who takes his twentieth century seriously
can afford to miss this challenging document.

this human, wise little book. Rusticus, kindly observer and critic of nature, takes you about his country home, where you make the acquaintance of the farm folk of whom he is justly proud: Cerberus, oneeyed dog and perfect companion; the pig, "the humorist of the farm, an incorrigible wag and nature's most perfect clown"; The Field Marshal of the poultry yard, “the bird who never has had and never will have an 'inferiority complex'"; the tranquil cow, "a bovine ruminant in three letters." and the Incomparable One, who understands and loves them all. A book of whimsical wit and philosophy that every essay-lover will want to read aloud.

It has been suggested that an advance copy of the puzzle on the
opposite page must have found its way to Mr. Dawes's room in the
Hotel Willard on a certain disastrous afternoon some three weeks
ago. Try it yourself and see how readily it might beguile anyone
who, like the Vice President or the average Living Age reader, is
thoroughly posted on every angle of politics, literature, geography,
and culture throughout the length and breadth of the civilized world.
