Force and Ideas: The Early Writings
Transaction Publishers - 356 sider
The acclaim for Lippmann the political thinker has at times obscured the equally impressive accomplishments of Lippmann the journalist. His output was prodigious, his influence on journalism significant. According to James Reston: "He has given a generation of newspapermen a wider vision of their duty." Early Writings provides a unique opportunity to rediscover this journalistic Lippmann and to observe the formative years of a brilliant mind.
In 1913, just three years out of Harvard, Lippmann was asked by Herbert Croly to help plan and edit a new "weekly of ideas," the New Republic. Beginning with its first issue in 1914 and continuing through the following six years, Lippmann wrote numerous signed and unsigned articles. Here are the best of them, written during the exciting political era that began with the trauma of World War I and ended in the stasis of Republican Normalcy.
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., places Lippmann in historical context while recreating the intellectual ambiance of the Wilsonian era. His annotations identify little-remembered personages and clarify issues that time has befogged. But in another sense, the issues and personages of 1910-1920 are only too familiar. Our world is still a world of war, ineffectual international political organizations, disappointed idealism, nerve-wracking platitudes, social unrest, and slinking politicians.
Walter Lippmann a member of the fabled Harvard Class of 1910, wrote more than a dozen major books on political thought, including Liberty and the News, The Phantom Public, and American Inquisitors, all available from Transaction. His newspaper column, "Today and Tomorrow," was widely syndicated from 1931 until his retirement in 1967. This is the eighth Transaction publication of Lippmann's major writings.
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. is Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, he was previously professor of history at Harvard University, and special assistant to President John F. Kennedy. Among his books are The Age of Jackson, The Age of Roosevelt, A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House, The Imperial Presidency, and The Cycles of American History.

Side 256 - They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard ; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
Side 255 - FOR the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
Side 80 - It is a fearful thing to lead this great peaceful people into war, into the most terrible and disastrous of all wars, civilization itself seeming to be in the balance. But the right is more precious than peace...
Side 63 - Only a tranquil Europe can be a stable Europe. There must be, not a balance of power, but a community of power...
Side 256 - And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and said unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you.
Side 22 - Ez fer war, I call it murder, — There you hev it plain an' flat; I don't want to go no furder Than my Testyment fer that; God hez sed so plump an' fairly, It's ez long ez it is broad, An' you've gut to git up airly Ef you want to take in God.
Side 256 - He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard ; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. 8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
Side 100 - In considering this question, then, we must never forget that it is a constitution we are expounding.
Side 256 - But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? 14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
Side 256 - But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more ; and they likewise received every man a penny.
