THIS I DO BELIEVE by David E. Lilienthal


Email this review


An intense, sincere, thoughtful series of logically progressive essays which blueprint America's position today, nationally and internationally, and which chart a course for the future. From his years of experience as a public servant he makes clear his belief in ""the capacity of democracy to surmount any trials that may lie ahead"" and on this credo he develops the background of the fears that threaten our freedom, the necessary relationship of technology and human understanding, the possibility of unity in spite of growing specialization, the important usefulness of atomic energy for the people and the issues of public services and public utilities. It is a book urging citizen participation and information, the application of knowledge and experience to expanding horizons, and a wholesome avowal of belief in his country and fellow men. A book which strengthens one's faith in a great American.
