KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of England, the Unknown Isle and The Spirit of France has given his readers in this new volume a philosophical study of the spirit of east and west. In three sections:- Life of the Nations, Life of Art and Life of the Spirit, he treats such contrasts as nationalism and internationalism, aristocracy and democracy, progress and reaction, Judaism and Christianity. Not an easy book to read, but beautifully written, and a challenge to the thoughtful reader to analyze his own response to the modern ideal.
