He left a crowded, demanding desk (his newspaper has the fourth largest circulation in the United States) and slipped down the harbor for Moscow. What he found in Russia during his brief stay he reports faithfully, with his particularly incisive insight and poignant sense of historicity, as the first half of his picture book.Then he describes his return to a disk which has piled up in the interim with the stories enacted in the daily news of his own country. He wades through the galley proofs as they come into his office. Murders, suicides, gang wars, strikes, vice crusades, lynchings, rapes, bank and munitions investigations - the full merry go-round of the more despairing American frieze, which seems hourly to be crumbling, is hammered and vigorously."
