PEACE OR ANARCHY

At 27, the author of this book is President of United World Federalists, and consulted by authorities many years his senior on many subjects on which his opinion those he speaks for- is valued. A young marine, wounded in the Pacific, he served to Stassen at the conference which drafted the United Nations Charter. In this book proceeds from his service in the war to an intellectual, idealistically motivated eration of the possibility of permanent peace. As against the more mature works in field, one questions the profundity of this, but the reasoning, the questioning, is Here is a discussion of the atom bomb, its potency, its secrecy which cannot be the little protection against it which can be attained; the policy of preparedness peace, which offers no real security; the mutual fear, and distrust, on the Russian action; the possibility of a so-called preventive war, which would only result in tion; the ""collective insecurity"" of the Charter and the U.N. as set up and reme which alone may ensure peace; amendments of the U.N. and the reconstruction various bodies which will give it the needed strength, eliminate the veto power izing every move today....An intelligent commentary and criticism, bearing witness our youth today can match wits with our statesmen and diplomats. Their voice must heard. The popularity of the material which has appeared in the Atlantic will give impetus to the book. Watch it.
