Long range national self-protection, designed to meet prevailing conditions and to achieve the end -- international democracy -- and avoid the threat of international autocracy. The author approaches the subject from various angles, tracing our history in relation to foreign policy, showing our connection with Europe's problem and Asia's, and the double threat east and west. He advocates a more positive and comprehensive policy than our present one, military and naval expansion to back our national strength, peacefully if possibly, internal measures to make us a more efficient and aware unit in world affairs, measures to strength those who stand for international democracy everywhere, cooperation and collaboration and as near an approach to League support as we can come. He grants our selfish isolation policy but tries to prove that, even for self-interest, we must rouse ourselves to acceptance of the need for a new policy. Interesting and challenging -- but not likely to reach a wide market.
