    • Capable of Honor
    • It is one of the most fundamental questions facing America today: How justifiably, or irresponsibly, do the volatile and unbiased American media—press, television and radio—attempt to interfere with, and control, the political process and the foreign policy of the nation? In a hotly fought Presidential primary, the news media fractures along ideological lines, supporting and distorting the candidates’ records, manipulating the news rather than covering it.
    • A Very Strange Society, a Journey Ot the Heart of South Africa
    • Not for a day or two, but for two months, after a year of research and study, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Allen Drury traveled through the Republic of South Africa-without preconceptions, without pre-packaged solutinos, with neither automatic condemnation nor automatic approval of what he saw.
