CONTEMPORARY FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS

A U. S. Military textbook that provides a chronological and historical condensation of the governmental and political structures of the Great Powers before World War II -- Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany, U. S. S. R., Japan, -- of which only Great Britain and U. S. S. R. retain their important status. Here is the background, in natural high spotting of personalities, events, trends, in factual rather than interpretative coverage, of the origins and development of each nation, the course during the war, the decisions confronting them in post-war planning. Planned for U.S.M.A. graduates in foreign service, this provides a handbook for education and reference, is limited to some degree in scope and value for the average reader in its emphasis on assemblage of facts rather than meaning of those facts.
