THE PLOTTERS

The author of Under Cover with another expose, this time not so much via the dangerous road of individual names (except in such outstanding figures as Gerald K. Smith), but rather of all sorts and types of organizations, designed to draw the veterans (and their vote) into the mesh through apparently harmless covers. He warns them to beware demands of adherence. He analyzes the composition- and the purpose behind various (and he names names). His is a campaign to sabotage those saboteurs who are building for isolationism, postwar product, who are exalting bigotry and intolerance. There's the same breathless sense of personal adventure as in Under Cover; it isn't quite such an individual smeer campaign; but it turns out in the pitiless daylight many of the hate spreading organizations. A sure seller, with the impetus of the earlier book (though the public is weary of anything that might make them uncomfortable).
