Gunther's Inside series were among the most popular books of reportage of the 1930s & 1940s. For Inside U.S.A., he set out from California & traveled to the Pacific Northwest, across the Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains, & the Midwest, up to New England, & down to the South & Southwest. His frank, lucid observations along the way -- on race relations, labor, the TVA, farm life, the politics of the big cities, etc. -- yield fascinating insights into life 50 years ago. He had an uncanny ability to catch telling details of the country's politics & culture. This edition has a new foreword by historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., reflecting on the changes over the last 50 years.
