From the Publisher:

Popular Front columnist and New Deal propagandist, fearless opponent of McCarthyism and feared scourge of official liars, I. F. Stone (1907?1989)? magnetic, witty, indefatigable?left a permanent mark on our politics and culture. A college dropout, he was already an influential newsman by the age of twenty-five, enjoying extraordinary access to key figures in Washington and New York. Guttenplan finds the key to Stone's achievements throughout his singular career?not just in the celebrated I. F. Stone's Weekly?lay in the force and passion of his political commitments. Stone's calm and forensic yet devastating reports on American politics and institutions sprang from a radical faith in the long-term prospects for American democracy. |

In an era when the old radical questions?about war, the economy, health care, and the right to dissent?are suddenly new again, Guttenplan's lively, provocative book makes clear why so many of Stone's pronouncements have acquired the force of prophecy.



"The life of Cage is meticulously told by Kenneth Silverman...." - Alex Ross 10/04/2010

"What is new in BEGIN AGAIN is a much more nuanced picture of Cage's personal life than has currently been available. Cage wrote a lot about himself, but, like his hero Thoreau, he maintained a Puritan opaqueness about his emotions even to the point of eventually saying that he hated them altogether. Silverman's research reveals a much more colorful and at times stormy erotic life than Cage alludes to in his own writings." - John Adams 11/21/2010
