The Publisher: Henry Luce and His American Century

VIEWS: 6 PAGES: 1

[...] the biography deals with Luce's (and Time's) enthusiasm fot Dwight Eisenhower and the distaste for Franklin Delano Roosevelt, along with his blindness toward developments in China and Vietnam, with an eye toward explaining the publisher rathet than commenting on the influence of the publication. The descriptions of Luce's courtship and chronically unhappy marriage to Clare, the accounts of extramarital affairs, and the descriptions of his later intellectual interests, including the rule of law movement and efforts to define a "national purpose," finally render the aloof, awkward figure sympathetic.
