Library Journal - Library Journal
An extraordinary coincidence occurred recently when two major libel cases involving famous military men and the American pressU.S. General William Westmoreland versus CBS and Israeli General Ariel Sharon versus Time magazinewere tried in the same courthouse in Manhattan at the same time. Adler, an experienced journalist as well as holder of a law degree, offers a penetrating analysis of the broadest ramifications of the two cases, including the disturbing conclusion that the press and the legal establishment in each instance placed their own interests above the search for the truth. This important book, which first appeared in the New Yorker , deserves the widest possible audience. Kenneth F. Kister, Pinnellas Park P.L., Fla.
