KIRKUS REVIEW

Projection and conjecture as the author of Will Germany Crash discusses some of the intangibles of the future of Germany; the possibility of what he terms a ""dependent revolution"", the lack of genuine leaders or parties, so far as human, the democratic forces, unnalized, but existing in the German people, the question of foreign intervention, a ""hard peace"" versus a lenient one, Russian demands versus American and British, a theoretical program for a democratic revolution. His conclusions stress the vital factor of re-education, that Germany must be incorporated into an international federation, not dismembered; that reparations must be limited, that unless she is treated as ""an equal among equals"" another war may result. This is the white to Vansittart's black, with some specific answers to Vansittart (whom he misleadingly quotes) as it seems these two have been sputtering at each other for some time. Hagen is not an equal combatant -- though his case is one that should be posed.
