Pitkin's books all sell. This should do better than his last book, A Chance of a Lifetime. At first, one feels that it is distinctly reactionary, in the plea for sustaining capitalism, as an American method. But then he goes on to develop his thesis; Capitalism has weathered some storms, it is -- in a modified form -- better adapted to American set-up, it has a chance to put its house in order, to abandon the profit system, and to work with governmental regimentation toward a constructive rebuilding of the economic scheme. Based on pretty sound understanding of the psychology of the vast conservative public.
