In his reporter's notebook, Salisbury describes how he gathered material for his 1960 articles on racial violence in the South, provides perspective on his controversial Vietnam war pieces from Hanoi, offers his views on various presidents, officials and issues from the early '60s into the Reagan era and shares in-house lore from the offices of the New York Times. Much of the journal deals with China: U. S. Policy toward the People's Republic, the relationship between Mao and Stalin, and Salisbury's admiration for Zhou Enlai ("No man I have met in a lifetime has made so deep a mark on me") . The expressed theme of the book is "the virtue and total necessity of reporting the unpopular event at the most especially at the most difficult touchy moment. ".
