KIRKUS REVIEW

Written under a grant from the Foundation for Foreign Affairs, Washington, D.C., this is a report on a four month trip throughout Germany that examines the U. S. post war policy there and criticizes American behavior in economic, moral and political terms. She scores heavily against the unequal treatment, the injustices of the trials, the errors of industrial demolition, the non-recognition of the rights to earn a living and to self defense -- all culminating in a predisposition toward Russian alliance. Through travel, personal interviews with individuals and organizations, through figures and little aired facts, she stresses all the shortcomings and failures of un-American attitudes and activities, she presents a grim picture of the conditions resulting from discriminatory practices which is alleviated only by the commendation she gives the Military Government and its ability to interpret its orders in humane terms. Enlightening if wide open for controversy.
