KIRKUS REVIEW

Don't be discouraged as to the market of a book tagged as a collection of essays, for Max Lerner provides a hypodermic for lazy minds that makes close reading a rewarding process. Essays, book reviews, articles brought together under headings that help fit them into each other to form a constructive survey of the present and a blue-print for an approach to the future, and a plan for a better world. He surveys thinkers and doers, past and present; he appraises America's place in world affairs; he challenges us to pool our social intelligence, our social courage, our social will if we would preserve democracy; he weighs the evidence and gives his answer to the isolationist and appearer; he views labor objectively and is frank in his own position.
