by Alistair CookeAlistair Cooke's humour, sense of proportion and his combination of a scholar's erudition with a journalist's sense of the present create for masterful prose that is genuinely supple and genuinely moving with the rhythms of the spoken voice.
The lectures collected in this book are what Cooke calls ' the journalist's main function: to be the link of communication between the expert and the layman'. In these essays the layman is talking back. They span a period of at least 2 decades, from the late 1960's to the mid 1980's, and are just as relevant to the world-politik/social/realpolitik now as then.
