This may prove helpful to parents seeking a way to put up to their sons and daughters the challenge of today and tomorrow. Helan Hill Miller calls this ""a record of purpose, a basis for judgment, as it seems in the year 1943 to one American."" She tells the story of the fight for liberty through generations of her own family, from the Mayflower down through American history to today -- a typical good American background and tradition. She discusses her own youthful reactions to liberty and democracy in the first World War; she reviews her growing social conscience and activities afterwards. She terms the issue of our times economic revolution, and challenges her sons as to what side they will take in the post war world. A thoughtful parent thinking aloud.
