KIRKUS REVIEW

The principles of Washington's Farewell Address are still sources of wisdom when cures for social ills are sought. The methods of Washington's physician however, are no longer studied."" -- This is the text for the book. Certain questions about living conditions and government are asked -- and the author logically follows through first on one side, then the other, and equally convincing on each. Then he reveals his own position. This results in a manner of writing highly readable, but too subtle for the uninitiated layman. It demands a good educational background. In the search for the right principles of government, economics and law, he denounces fraudulent principles, emphasizing again and again, the importance of taking part in this drama of government. His case is brilliantly presented. A book for man or woman interested in principles and practice of government.
