KIRKUS REVIEW

We are so accustomed to think of Leacock as a humorist that it comes as a surprise to find him writing in sober vein -- wise words of a wise man. Looking backward for ""renewed inspiration and sustained courage"" in a brief refresher of the pattern of liberty through the centuries, and its import today. He points up the contrasts between national and individual liberty, the early attainment of the former, the hard struggle to establish the latter, this is a microcosmic view of what we have achieved, which builds up to the challenge that liberty must be safeguarded to be preserved, that individual freedom demands individual protection.
