PREVIEW OF HISTORY by Raymond Gam Swing


Email this review


This is a collection of significant radio talks, speeches made at various places, largely colleges, and the whole prefaced by an introductory chapter which places the well-known commentator with those who see the post-war world as dominated by force concentrated in the hands of four major powers (Britain, Russia, China, the United States), and implemented by local and regional instruments of law and order in the hands of the minor powers. I found the opening chapter abstruse and extremely difficult reading. But the selection of other material is excellent, and makes a pattern of world history, a sort of refresher course in the interplay of world events, from Munich to Casablanca. I cannot see it as reaching a very wide market.
