Editorial Reviews

Reviewer - Fran Lewis
Stanley Dyrector takes readers back to a time when freedom of speech was halted or non-existent. Some might say that when defending those that you felt were not guilty would cast guilt upon yourself. A great book with outstanding interviews, and books that I would love to read - and interviewees if alive I would love to have on my own radio show....This is a must read for everyone....This book gets FIVE GOLD LISTS as does the Foreword by Edward Asner.
