Description
The books in the Inside series by journalist John Gunther were hugely popular in the 1930s and 40s; for this book, originally published in 1947, Gunther set out from California and traveled the entire country. His frank, lucid observations along the way—on race relations, labor, the Tennessee Valley Authority, farm life, the politics of the big cities, and much else—yield fascinating insights into America some seven decades ago. "Inside U.S.A. does not pretend to be a profound analysis of American civilization, in the manner of Tocqueville and Bryce," wrote Arthur Schlesinger Jr. in his introduction to this 50th-anniversary edition. "But Gunther had his own quiver of penetrating questions.... Wherever he went, he asked, Who runs this state or city? What are the basic and irreversible sources of power—social power, economic power, political power? He interviewed more than 900 people and emerged with more than a million words of notes. And he did it all himself, without professional researchers or stringers."
