KIRKUS REVIEW

Using the findings of the Foreign Morale Analysis Division in the wartime analysis of Japanese morale as a springboard, this develops into a thoughtful discussion of social science and its potential development in the urgent need for better human relations. Showing how the Division's pre-defeat reports tallied with the facts learned after the occupation and how these reports could have prevented the atom bomb on Hiroshima if the information as to the weakening military and civilian morale had been used, this then investigates the role of the social scientist and his profession in the problems, world wide and community, of today, makes recommendations for the study of those problems by the trained worker, and applies all argument for a permanent peace. While aimed at the general reader, this would appeal first to those interested and working in this field.
