DINNER AT THE WHITE HOUSE

Adamic records his impressions of a dinner, inspired by Mrs. Roosevelt's reading Two-Way Passage (1941), at the White House in January 1942, at which Winston Churchill was also a guest. Here are his personal feelings, doubts, groupings, suspicions, of American-British relations as personified by FDR and Churchill; his questions of the probity of both men; his interpretations of the meanings below the superficial social gestures. This serves as a springboard for his versions of one world or no world, the threats and dangers to the idea, the arguments and answers to opponents of this type of thinking and planning. A propaganda premise piece that is not for Adamic's general public, but for those who have followed the development of his theories in Two-Way Passage.
