KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the first of Professor Bailey's two studies which will appear almost simultaneously and it deals with America's present rather than past foreign relations. With some textbook devices (sub-headings, etc.) he discusses American foreign policy goals and techniques. Somewhat hortative in tone, he advocates selective containment, demands reason and moderation, and scores the war in Vietnam; he also gives a good many practical directives on the formation and conduct of policy. Professor Bailey's chapbook is plainspoken and highly readable, and his reputation will help to ensure a relatively sturdy audience.
