Many people are groping for a building program for our next step, politically, economically, socially -- feeling that capitalism is in its death throes, and that neither Communism nor Fascism is the American answer. Here is a book that will help toward that end. It is first of all, a study of the American middle class, in whose hands, the writer claims, lies our future. The formation of a strong third party -- the reasons why no existing party will serve -- the basic principles on which a program should be built. Timely. Provocative. Well done. The author is the editor of ""Common Sense"".
