Everyone who heard Eve Curie's speech at the Book and Author Luncheon has wanted to have the text in permanent form. Newspapers the country over made editorial comment. Repercussions have continued for many subsequent weeks.... Here it is, this speech that caught the imagination and the sensibilities at the time, and that -- on rereading, fully justifies the enthusiasm. A simple, ungarnished presentation of a Europe at bay, of the imperative demand that the mad dog be stopped; and an extraordinary analysis of the spirit and tempo of the countries at war. A revealing document -- a testament of experience and faith.
