EUROPE IN RETREAT

In the flood of books on the Central European situation, this still stands out as a book not to be missed. The editor of the Foreign Policy Bulletin has succeeded in clarifying many aspects of foreign problems. She makes a keen analysis of Mein Kampf in relation to a fifteen year period; she recognizes Hitler's shrewdness and keen understanding of mass psychology; she makes the best comparison of Nazism and Communism that has appeared in brief compass, she attempts an appraisal of the results of Munich. She pleads for redefinition of democracy. A book that gives the devil his due, but carries a warning against devils!
