I have been deeply troubled about what I mysel... more »f have seen, and have puzzled not a little to know how to convey my concern, as a private citizen, to my own people.
This book does it.
How to get every American to read it and read it now, as soon as it is published. We have a great new opportunity now to medn our ignorance and form bold new policies of true leadership, worthy of our own history and achievements as a republic, committed to the democratic way of life. If only we can get this book read by Americans, high and low and everywhere, before policies are set, men are appointed, and the groove established.
Into these pages is packed an amazing consolidation of fact, understanding, and warning. Every sentence is a distillation of truth. This is the way it is with us in the world at this moment, and by us I mean every American, and by moment I mean a small space of time which passes so quickly that delay is perilous.
The book deals fearlessly with facts and must be read fearlessly. It can be so read, for it deals with hope as well as with fear, and the author gives specific reasons for hope in plans for action that citizens can take.« less
