The Problems of Lasting Peace Author:Herbert Hoover & Hugh Gibson When The Problems of lasting Peace made its appearance, it received unanimous acclaim. "The only intelligent answer to 'Mein Kampf'" declared the late Bob Davis in The New York Sun. Ann O'Hare McCormick, writing in the N.Y. Times Book Review, said; "It is more than a literary event when a former President of the United States and a diplomat of 3... more »0 years' standing undertake to write a preface to peace-making," while The Providence Journal and The Chicago Daily News were among the first to call it "required reading."
But the tremendous interest aroused by The Problems of Lasting Peace extended far beyond the literary pages and the book shops. Outstanding newspaper and magazine editors all over the country undertook to tell their subscribers about it -- to urge them to read the book which Collier's calls "Indispensable to anybody who hopes to think intelligently about postwar problems."
Columnists and commentators, too, were quick to praise The Problems of Lasting Peace and tell of the reaction it received in various parts of the country. William Phillip Simms, writing from Washington, declared: “So objective and thorough is this work that what they have produced is nothing less than a state paper and will be so regarded here.”
This book has received an unprecedented favorable recommendation from more than 500 important book reviewers; 250 leading newspapers; 50 leading magazines; 75 radio commentators and columnists; and 100 men and women who are leaders of public thought.« less
