KIRKUS REVIEW

A guide to the maze of Balkan national, ethnic, political, economic, historical tangles by one who maintains that British, American and Russian collaboration originated soon for channels of service, can prevent postwar disaster. Through profiles of each country, discussion of the basis of nationalism, of peasant problems and low standards of living, of minority problems, geographical positions, fears, the impact of history, the international relationships, etc., provide each country its place in the perplexing whole. His survey underlines his feeling that foreign influence has made for instability, that a flexible Federation could make for security, unity and democracy And that this will be achieved only with better public information and interest.
