KIRKUS REVIEW

This Conservative interpretation of the Cold War should be welcomed by political men of all persuasions--the way a doctor might welcome a fever crisis. Tendentious, cantankerous, often erroneous, even devious at times, this blistering, blustering attack on the Liberal ""establishment's"" foreign policy from Yalta to Saigon will have to be answered. The thesis: the Liberals have changed America's appeasement of Russian rulers and Communism in general. The Liberal conspirators--Dean Rusk, Kennedy, Johnson, et al. -- are dedicated agents or unknowing fools, selling America's security to the Communist dream of empire. When the list of Communist sympathizers is trotted out, this reads like a Conservative soap opera; its all-inclusive list of countries under subversion also reads like a Conservative political geography; but even when juggling the facts of events such as the Dominican invasion, this National Review staff writer never shows himself as a part of the conspiracy himself. Only when he applies that dangerous Communist weapon Sociology to an analysis of Doctor No do we know we've been had. A steady barrage from the Right.
