Strange Inhabitants of the New World Winter 2015
An extract from the new edition of Tarkington's collected memoirs edited by Jeremy Beer. This selection includes some of Tarkington’s reflections on the dawn of the automobile age. “If you live, you will yourselves become strange inhabitants of the new world.”

A culture is perennially in need of renewal. A culture does not survive and prosper merely by being taken for granted; active defense is always required, and imaginative growth, too.
