KIRKUS REVIEW

Five essays by Vera Micheles Dean, Walter Van Kirk, James P. Warburg, Pitirim Sorokin and Harry R. Rudin which deal with the international insecurity of our time and include with each article some suggested scriptural and general reading. The inability of men and nations to accept a state of insecurity, and the lack of economic internationalism which has caused it; the U. S. and the U.S.S.R. -- what is the nature of the conflict and can it be handled without military force; national sovereignty versus world government; the development of underdeveloped areas; and that potential catastrophe -- the Third World War, these are the points of discussion which have been accorded mature and experienced consideration. Despite the title, this has greater international than religious significance.
