There can’t have been many books written in the past 20 years on Washington journalism in which, if you riffle the index, you won’t come to the name: Stone, I. F. What is remarkable about this is that Izzy Stone, who died at 81 on June 18, was not some columnist syndicated to 300 newspapers across the United States and abroad or the head of the large Washington bureau of a national chain, nor was he—both sides would have choked at the suggestion—a network news anchor, with the careful hairdo and the authoritative voice, reading crisp superficialities confected for him by someone else.By GEORGE BAIN5 min
