Murrow: His Life and Times

Sperber, A.M.

The grainy baritone voice and plain prose of Edward R. Murrow are associated with journalistic integrity in broadcasting folklore.

A.M. Sperber pulls together twelve years of research, including FBI files on Murrow, from the Depression as the American radio correspondent of his generation, his broadcasts from London during World War Two, a CBS director during the McCarthy era and, much later, protagonist of 'Good Night and Good Luck', a movie about the latter period.

Sperber raises questions which lie at the heart of the current debate over the role of news in American public life.

Illustrated and indexed.
