KIRKUS REVIEW

The author who was with the State Department for six years, speaks with authority -- and some degree of violence -- on the subject of our State Department as an inefficient relic of the 19th century, bankrupt in spirit, ""aloof, insulated and infallible"", needing adequate reorganization and vigorous leadership based on faith in the people. He avoids the pitfalls of personal animosity; bases his criticism on those factors that have brought the State Department to an all-time low, and indicates the steps that can be taken now to blaze new trails in the field of information, of democracy in handling of foreign affairs, of preparing the country, Congress and the State Department for the inevitable post-war responsibilities of world leadership, champion of principles of freedom.
