KIRKUS REVIEW

A symposium of 17 articles, whose purpose is to clarify relations between England and America, but, though many Americans are quoted in the discussions, only two contributors are American by birth, which makes this a sort of one way passage of interpretation. There are accounts of common ideals, the British parliamentary system, world courts, British social services, postwar freedom of the skies, world organization, Americans in England, portraits of Americans and their country, their history --all combining to offer some basis for mutual understanding, mutual aid and mutual action in world peace. Some of the essays are useful and worthwhile, others controversial, and the whole subject to debate on our side, for its lack of balance.
