ON ALL FRONTS by Ralph Barton Perry


Email this review


Shall Not Perish From the Earth contained ""fighting words"" -- it was no professor's thesis, but a challenge to thinking men. Now in its third printing. On All Fronts is a logical successor, and yet it somehow lucks the clear-cut focus of the earlier book, its ideas, while individually they have color and life, taken together fall to ""jl"". He attempts to clarify the issues before America, the problems that confront the tionists, the interventionists, the appeasers, the fascists, the sentimentalists and the realists. His sincerity is evident- his approach tinged with pedagogy. One gmpass fighting morale, there are grand bits; but he fails to marshal his forces as to cover all fronts. Too bad- it is almost very good.
