KIRKUS REVIEW

A positive program for victorious peace -- that is Corey's challenge in this provocative book. Where Burnham's Managerial Revolution argues that democracy is impossible in any ""new order"" after capitalism, Corey has faith in an economic reconstruction for democracy with minimum changes maintaining a system of checks and balances in which government, capital, management and labor will each hold their own without anyone taking undue power, the inevitable opening wedge to totalitarianism. Here is a clear and impassioned analysis of both fascism and communism, which cuts to the very roots of their weaknesses and makes democracy seem worth fighting for, no matter what its weaknesses. Not a superficial book, but one that will stand the long pull.
