In the Name of Sanity Author:Raymond Swing Late last summer Raymond Swing decided to devote one broadcast each week to "a world made new by atomic energy." — "My proportions would be nearer right, he stated, "if I talked about an atomic world four nights a week and about the doings of an old an obsolete world only one. Since others will learn the secret of making the atomic bomb in four ... more »or five years, we have only that long to start creating world government to control it, it it is not to destroy us. World government appears to be the most urgent social necessity you or I or any of our ancestors have ever been asked to face."
This book contains what Mr. Swing said in his broadcasts, and his Americans United speech, since that day in August when the firs atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Against the background of the political developments, he traces the story of the bomb, from Dr. Einstein's letter to President Roosevelt through the establishment of the National Research Defense Committee, the statement of Oak Ridge scientists, the May-Johnson bill, to the decisions of the Moscow Conference of the Foreign Minister, and other developments down to the present time.
Mr. Swing has written an intensely interesting introduction for this urgent plea for a world government, wherein he shows, with cogent, reasoned arguments, why world government is the only alternative to world suicide.« less
