Robert Vaughn takes time out from his Drury Lane appearance in "Tender Trap" to discuss his new book "Only Victims" with Studs Terkel. The discussion spans the years 1938 when Martin Dies became the first House Committee on Unamerican Activities (HUAC) chairman to Vice President Spiro Agnew's condemnation of the "New York Times" and "Washington Post". Vaughn created the title of his book "Only Victims" from a Dalton Trumbo speech that reflected back on the era of HUAC as being one where there were no heroes, no villains, only victims.
Connor Cruise O'Brien, Irish politician, writer, historian and academic scholar, discusses politics and the book "Writers and politics: essays and criticisms".
Writer Nicholas von Hoffman and Studs Terkel discuss Hoffman’s book, 20th century US Presidents, and the power that Presidents hold.
