This volume is a combination of two of Albert Jay Nock's previously published, now out-of-print journals, one covering a year and a half in the early 1930s and a period in 1934 and 1935. There journals are a treasure trove of Nock's charming, pithy, and always pleasantly good-natured observations of places he travels, politics, social life, human nature, and anything else he happens to notice - from a hen on the road to the villainous faces of politicians.
