Editorial: What We Do When the News Isn't Good: Part II, by Irving E. Rockwood. Mr. Rockwood explains Choice's policy for handling complaints from authors whose works are negatively reviewed.
The Federal Writers' Project: A Legacy of Words, by Susan Rubenstein DeMasi. DeMasi examines the literature relevant to the Federal Writers' Project. In examining the primary literature, the essay considers a sampling of the hundreds of books and documents that emanated directly from the project, and work published both during the life of the project and after its demise. The essay explains the distinction between these two bodies of primary work and cites selected examples; it also mentions canonical American writers who worked for the project or were inspired by it. The secondary literature discussed dates from the time of the FWP to the present. The final section references web resources that are critical to those studying or interested in the Federal Writers'Project.
