A handy Anthology, from Herodotus to the French War in Indo-China. It is well assembled, and could still be accorded a place in a professional reading program.

It took me several years to gradually go through the stupendous anthology of great journalism. Included here are 130 examples of great journalism covering important moments and memorable events in (for the most part) Western history, beginning with a 16th century account of the "confessions" of a witch, from a newsletter published in Vienna and ending with the trial in Israel of Adolph Eichmann.

Contemporary history set in the frame of reference is a vital need today.… (mere)
