KIRKUS REVIEW

Gerard Piel's collection of essays and lectures is a work of serious intent worthy of the maximum attention. Concerned with the dilemma of the age; either total destruction or world-wide social reconstruction, both principally through scientific achievement, the author explores the East-West impasse, illuminates the perils and perversities of the two camps. It offers penetrating commentary on all the vital issues: arms control, economy of abundance, the underdevelopment struggle, automation, Soviet education, government, censorship etc.
