Summary
"The author has written the first scholarly biography of Norman Cousins, who, as the editor and owner of the Saturday Review for more than thirty years, had a powerful platform from which to help shape American public debate. A staunch opponent of nuclear weapons, Cousins was involved in several secret diplomatic missions at the height of the Cold War, and acting as a private citizen, he played a major role in getting the Limited Test Ban Treaty signed"-- Provided by publisher.
