David Dempsey

  • The Revolution in Books

    Since the war, the book trade has been jolted out of its usual course by the runaway of paper-bound books, which this year will sell more than 260 million copies. For an accounting of this phenomenon, we turned to DAVID DEMPSEY, one of the Editors of the New York Times Book Review. A graduate of Antioch, class of 1937, Mr. Dempsey served as a combat correspondent with the Fourth Marine Division; he collaborated in the preparation of two volumes of war history and then did free-lance work in New York before joining the staff of the Times.
