Prize-winning author James Srodes offers a vivid and scintillating portrait of the twelve young men and women who, on the eve of World War I, came together in Washington, D.C.'s tony Dupont Circle neighborhood. They were ambitious for personal and social advancement, and what bound them together was a sheer determination to remake America and the rest of the world in their progressive image. At one residence-known ironically as The House of Truth-lived Felix Frankfuter, a future Supreme Court Justice, and Walter Lippman, later the most important political writer of the twentieth century. Anothe.

Darling of "The American Spectator".

The Dulles brothers were "progressives"? ? ? Now that's a stretch; somehow to this author's mind the overthrowing of democratically elected governments of Iran and Guatemala (and who knows where else) is likened to progressives? The horrible whitewash of the phony Warren Commission Report is "progressive"? John Foster Dulles' offer to the French to use nuclear weapons on Vietnam (circa 1958 or thereabouts regarding Dien Bien Phu) was "progressive"? There is something seriously amiss with this book?
