In the Spring of 1977, Yale University gave Cooke its rarely awarded Howland Medal. Presenting the award, Yale's president, Kingman Brewster, said "Alistair Cooke's subtle and perceptive view of America has helped to determine how the rest of the English-speaking world understands the American element in their destiny. In this book, Cooke brings the same qualities to bear on six famous transatlantic figures--Charles Chaplin, Edward VIII, H.L. Mencken, Adlai Stevenson, Bertrand Russell, and Humphrey Bogart--each of whom has a legendary meaning for our time.ISBN: 0-394-48434-7
