Arthur Miller's "Colledted Essays" will bring together fifty previously uncollected pieces published between 1945 and 1999. The pieces, which originally appeared in a wide variety of magazines and newspapers (including Harper's, The Atlantic, Esquire, Life, The Saturday Review, The Nation and The New York Times Magazine) offer provocative commentary on significant people, issues and events from the second half of the twentieth century -by one of America's foremost public intellectuals. Organized chronologically, the essays take the reader on a whirlwind ride through modern history: the Nazi War Crime Trials; McCarthyist America in the '50s; Vietnam; the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe; Watergate; and finally ending with President Clinton's infamous liaison with Monic Lewinsky. Woven throughout are evocative memoirs, theater commentaries and thoughtful meditations on art, morality, and freedom of expression. Taken together the collection not only constitutes an amazing cultural analysis andcritique of American society, but paints a fascinating portrait of the private man who created some of America's best drama.
