A WATCHER ON THE RHINE

A vitally important and disturbing book in which a British journalist proves that the deceptive calm of Bonn masks potential disturbers of the peace- a revived Ruhr, resentful refugees and incorrigible former Nazis that could pull up the shallow roots or democracy and bring a superficially entrenched prosperity crashing down. Connell's analysis is thorough, trenchant and fascinating. Much of it deals with key people in politics, industry, finance and labor. Altogether it should provide stimulating discussion material for modern history classes, and as a trade book, it should reach the kind of market that White's Fire in the Ashes achieved.
