"Dr. White's journal is a haunting, absorbing self-portrait of an ardent feminist, pacifist-dissenter, poet and nature essayist in the years between the First and Second World Wars. A keen observer of American culture, she comments mordantly on the personalities and events of the era: the 1919 Peace Conference; the prosecutions of Scott Nearing and Max Eastman; strikes; the McDowell Colony and Provincetown in the twenties; the Depression; the Spanish Civil War; the Battle of Britain and Pearl Harbor" 1st ed.
