SIX UPON THE WORLD

This is a distinguished book about distinguished men- a half dozen of them, who represent as many areas of American ideology and activity. The author has chosen his six because to him they represent their century and their country in its finest endeavour toward responsible citizenship, and toward a civilization which will truly ""set men free"". Douglass aligns his six giants, and by the close has managed to synthesize their great differences in religion, politics, and philosophy until the reader feels that there is an undeniable solid basis of Americanism in each man which relates them all. And so, in what may seem a strange fraternity, he affiliates Paul Hoffman- of Studebaker and more recently the Ford Foundation, Cardinal Francis J. Spellman, William Foster- head of the Communist Party in America, James B. Conant- president emeritus of Harvard and a leader in atomic research, Walter Reuter- the CIO president, and Sloan- the president of General Motors... An important book which men may enjoy- admire- challenge.
