KIRKUS REVIEW

Africa, Asia and the Mid-East are the fields in which the seeds of nationalism today grow most vigorously. Long undeveloped and dependent on larger countries, the people of these areas, wisely or not, are filled with the zeal for autonomy. In this timely book, Leonard Kenworthy profiles the men who have been in the foreground of the various nationalist movements--Nehru, Ben Gurion, Nasser, Nkrumah, Magsaysay, Diem, Sukarno, Nu, Senanayake--giving a vivid picture not only of the men themselves, but of the worlds they shape. An excellent companion to the study of contemporary affairs.
