Thomas Griffith, former foreign editor of TIME and editor of LIFE, chronicles TIME founder and editor Henry Luce's relationship with protege Theodore White. Under Luce's wing during the 1940s, White became perhaps the greatest journalist of his time, chronicling wars and the corruptions of Chinese leaders for TIME up until a 1946 falling out with his mentor. Richard Reeves, writing for TIME, describes Griffith's book (Random House; 340 pages; $24) as "a primer on those times and that TIME's dominance then as a magazine with an attitude."
