This is a book designed primarily for educational leaders and international centers, rather than the general reader. The Director of the Institute of International Education writes of pioneering in cultural relations as he has witnessed their origin, development, and growth. His story of early interests in international influences and work with various organisations connected with such purposes covers the inception of exchange scholarships, professors, lectures, and tells of his travels in Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Hawaii, the Philippines, China, Latin America, at various times. He recounts meetings with all types of citizens of these countries. In addition to being an appraisal of systems, purposes, a commentary on contrasts, an methods of indoctrination, it winds up with speculation of hemisphere solidarity and its obstacles.
