KIRKUS REVIEW

An anthology of the attempts made to keep us out of war, bringing the great guns to bear as a record of ""men and women who stand at the peak of attainment in their several fields"" attempt to ""halt the mad rush toward involvement in a foreign war which may so easily spell the doom of the American manner of life"". So Herbert Hoover, Carleton Beale, Robert Hutchins, Harry Emerson Fosdick, ugh Johnson, John T. Flynn, Senator Wheeler, Senator Taft, Charles and Anne Lindbergh -- and other -- are quoted, and though the tone throughout is non-intervention, it is not necessarily isolationist. There are many livergencies of individual thought...on aid to Britain, on American preparedness, on the economic, moral, religious, industrial sides. For its side of the argument, a good collection, but their preface figure of ""that vast 80 percent of Americans who stand for non-intervention"" is a bit high.
