MEMO TO J F K by NBC News Correspondents


Email this review


With a preface by the President of NBC, Robert E. Kintner, nine overseas correspondents lay it on the line as they see it. Their thoughts, criticisms and suggestions are here- no holds barred, no punches pulled. And these are correspondents who report what and as they see it. For anyone who wants an inside picture of our relations with the Soviet, with West Germany, with Japan, France, Africa, Great Britain, Italy, Latin America (including Cuba), Formosa and Asia this should be required reading. Perhaps it lacks the bite of A Nation of Sheep; it lacks also fanatical onesidedness. It offers more of constructive suggestions as to how the many problems inherited from the Eisenhower administration and the Truman administration. One becomes aware of the delicacy of the relationship with the so-called neutral nations as well as with our closest friends and allies. These men make soundings far below the surface; some of these soundings are terrifying. Our overseas radio and TV correspondents are perhaps the eyes and the ears, not only of Washington and Capitol Hill, but of alert citizens, concerned and disturbed over the future of our country.
