KIRKUS REVIEW

Skirting the over-emphasized field of politics, Bertrand Russell plunges into social questions of our times, stressing the dangers of over-organization in thought and action, and showing how he steers clear of communism and fascism. He pleads for space for contemplation -- and training of mind thereto. And he heads toward his recurrent thesis of freedom of mental processes from the trammels super-imposed by tradition bound society. Stimulating -- as always. The Bertrand Russell market is fairly well defined.
