"...Navasky's story is...about the nuts and bolts of editing an intellectual journal, interesting enough in its own right."
From the Publisher
Editors Note In this account of a great journalistic tradition, the author reflects on his journalistic experiences and offers a spirited, provocative argument for independent journals of opinion as vital to the health of democracy.
Annotation Recalling his more than quarter-century tenure as editor and publisher of the revered liberal magazine, the Nation, Victor Navasky is a spirited advocate of small magazines and their role in keeping us informed and free as he shares the struggles of funding and circulation, the occasional bruised egos and angry politicos, some legal woes, and the very rich and rewarding encounters with the best and the brightest writers, thinkers, and critics on the Left, including I.F. Stone, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., Susan Sontag, Christopher Hitchens, and many others. Though he discusses his roots and early years, this is mostly a career memoir (and media criticism) from one who was there and knows.
Editors Note 2  Winner of the 2005 George Polk Book Award Victor S. Navasky is the renowned editor, writer, and educator who was at the helm of The Nation for almost thirty years. A Matter of Opinion, a scintillating reflection on his experiences, is an extraordinary political document--and a passionately written, irresistibly charming account of a great journalistic tradition.
