Tibutes: Stanley Karnow

Monday, January 28, 2013

Stanely Karnow was not only a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, but a foreign correspondent and television documentarian.  His books include Vietnam: A History, Mao and China: From Revolution to Revolution, and the memoir, Paris in the Fifties -- which prompted his friend, Bernard Kalb, the former CBS reporter, to recall, "Stanley has a great line about how being a journalist is like being an adolescent all your life."  You can hear him speak with Leonard as part of a panel discussion about the accuracy of historical movies from November 1995.
