At mid-point in the most tumultuous of recorded centuries, Gerald Johnson has stopped to examine what has happened in the last fifty years to that astonishingly durable person, the American citizen. In a single unprecedented generation Wilson, Roosevelt and Lenin, three giants of history, have passed and left a changed world after them. The fourth giant remains to be reckoned with — Joseph Stalin.

How has the average man reacted to these awsome phenomena? How has his outlook shifted from the days when nothing was more electrifying than Teddy Roosevelt's teeth, or William J. Bryan's tongue? What has he done in his own right to shape the men and events of his era?

The author of INCREDIBLE TALE brings to these questions the penetrating insight which has long since ranked him among the shrewdest and most readable commentators of our time. He is not content merely to rake over familiar landmarks; his interest is always in the why and not the what of history, and many of his answers carry a jolt. Gerald Johnson does not believe the twentieth-century American to be a hero. He believes in him as a man of sense, with an enlarging awareness of democracy and his responsibility to make it work. This sense has been acquired the hard way, in a series of decades complacent, gaudy, rich, poor, and supremely critical. —from the publisher
