LOOKING BEHIND THE CENSORSHIPS

The title is misleading. Except for a brief introduction, this has nothing to do with censorship, but is a birdseye view of international affairs by the head of the Foreign News Bureau of the Times. Opening chapters dispose briefly of methods of news release, policies, control. Then on to discussion of undercover politics of Europe, America and the Far East, contrasting national policies. Then -- specific events, -- Ethiopia, the Rhineland invasion, Edward's pro-German leanings, Hitler and Mussolini, etc. Controversial, in many instances. War scares -- which he thinks simply scareheads. There is a journalistic glibness and superficiality which makes one pause. Easy reading.
