Written during the infancy of the U.N. and many of its affiliated agencies (the World Bank, the IMF, UNESCO . . .) this Council on World Tensions Special Edition "outlines a stirring and practical program to combat the poverty and illiteracy that enslave two-thirds of mankind . . ." and ends with the oh, so optimistic sentence: "By the year 2000, we can be living in a world that has overcome poverty -- a world without want."

My particular copy is inscribed, "For Lucien Aigner with all good wishes. Paul G. Hoffman July 17, 1964"
