KIRKUS REVIEW

A clear restatement of purposes and objectives -- a creed for the common man -- the first time that any public man in a key position has placed this war in its true perspective against the 150 year struggle for freedom. This speech of Vice President Wallace is being hailed by liberals everywhere as of definite importance in formulating the policy of the USA in a post war world. Wallace sees this as a people's war, waged so that the people's revolution may continue. The Four Freedoms are the core of this revolution; to achieve them we must rally all forces for total war and total peace. Imperialism -- of all kinds -- must go. He sees other revolutions (the French, the Russian) as steps in the greater revolution for freedom of man, partial truths and a step towards fuller consciousness and higher organization. Of the speaker, Dorothy Thompson says, ""A hard clear streak of Biblical righteousness in Henry Wallace. With it goes humaneness and mercy."".
