History • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 1993

Curious about what happened in the not too distant past? David Halberstam presents the 1950's, clearly integrating history, social change, politics and technology and their impact on each other and the world. Edwin Newman narrates this abridged version of history. His voice is reminiscent of newscasters': clear, concise and understandable. One episode merges into the next, as all history does. Since this work is all narrative, there is no need for characterization. The abridgment is obvious but unobtrusive; the storylines are easy to follow. Newman's reading brings history alive for both the novice and the scholar. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 93]
