An Unladylike Profession: American Women War Correspondents in World War I

by Chris Dubbs

Review in Wall Street Journal:

“Mr. Dubbs remarks on the reporter’s duty to report the truth no matter how uncomfortable it might be. The journalists profiled in this absorbing book lived up to that responsibility.”

Touched with Fire: Morris B. Abram and the Battle against Racial and Religious Discrimination

by David E. Lowe

Review from Jewish Book Council:

“[Abram] wrote to Pres­i­dent Ronald Rea­gan that the civ­il rights move­ment had turned a dan­ger­ous cor­ner and ​’should return to first prin­ci­ples — the zeal­ous regard for equal oppor­tu­ni­ty and the pro­mo­tion of col­or­blind law and social pol­i­cy.’ Lowe, a for­mer vice pres­i­dent for gov­ern­ment rela­tions and pub­lic affairs at the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy, strong­ly agrees with such sen­ti­ments, and, not sur­pris­ing­ly, his biog­ra­phy is a lauda­to­ry exam­i­na­tion of its subject.”
