KIRKUS REVIEW

The cancer of colonial imperialism under quiet attack by the leading Negro intellectual who here pleads for the "" to of the world"", which will have no voice nor power of democratic control, no representation, in the world after the war unless the Dumbarton Oaks proposals are revised. Here are the disregarded colonies, still dependent on the philanthropy () of imperialism, still living in conditions of disease and ignorance and slave labor, the slums of the world. Here are the other unfree people, the Dominions, parts of South and Central America, the Middle East, the Balkans, all victims of foreign exploitation. The question of race and color damarcations in America -- the theoretical democracy; the position of Russia, whether co-exploiter or continued communist And finally, the conviction that without freedom for the colonies there can be no peace...Supported by primary evidence, this is a calmly, incisively stated argument and appeal for equality.
