Transcript Book Reviews with the Treaty of Versailles. The other deals with Far Eastern policy. Professor Tansill, probably America's leading authority on diplomatic his- torv. is professor of American diplomatic history at Georgetown University. He is the author of many books in his field, including one of the best revisionist histories of World War I. Before turning to successful intervention in the Pacific, President Roosevelt had been carrying on an undeclared shooting war in the Atlantic. But Hitler, for all his criminal folly, had been shrewd enough to avoid giving Roosevelt the incident which would provoke an open American declaration of war. A chapter, "Roosevelt is Frustrated in Europe," is provided by Dr. Frederic R. Sanborn. Dr. Sanborn, who specializes in international law and diplomacy, had already written an earlier revisionist study, Design for War: A Study of Secret Power Politics, 1937-1941. Dr. William L. Neumann is a leading authority on Far Eastern history, especially Japanese history. His chapter is an excellent concise history of American-Japanese relations from 1921 to Pearl Harbor. Dr. Neumann's Mak- iuo the Peace, 1941-1945, published in 1950, is one of the very best accounts we have on how we lost the peace in the wartime conferences. George Morgenstern got the smear treatment when he published his book, Pearl Harbor, in 1947. But Charles A. Beard termed the book "a permanent contribution to the quest for an understanding of the tragedy of Pearl Harbor." Dr. Beard's estimate now stands as being well-confirmed. For this compendium, Mr. Morgenstern has written on the same subject in a chapter entitled, "The Actual Road to Pearl Harbor." Percy L. Greaves, Jr., has devoted himself mainly to research rather than to writing. But his experience particularly qualified him to treat the subject of his chapter, "The Pearl Harbor Investigations." Mr. Greaves was employed personally by Senator Owen Brewster to assist the minority members of the joint Pearl Harbor investigating committee. For the revelation of a considerable number of facts that were supposed to be kept concealed, a generous measure of credit must go to Mr. Greaves. And. if the secret manipulation of America into the war presents a sorry spectacle, the efforts to conceal and suppress the truth later are even more disgusting. William Henry Chamberlain, a journalist who spent twelve years in Moscow, writes a chapter appropriately entitled, "The Bankruptcy of a Policy." Mr. Chamberlain has been persistent in calling attention to the awful and tragic fruits of global inter- ventionism and war. His earlier book, America's Second Crusade, is a brilliant treatment of the results in moral and physical destruction and slavery. George A. Lundberg, an eminent sociologist, served as consultant for the National Resources Planning Board. He later became head of the Department of Sociology at the University of Washington. His chapter approaches the subject of American foreign policy from the sociological standpoint, and as it may be regarded in the light of national interest. While some might be inclined to disagree with his eco logical approach at some points, tj| will find Dr. Lundberg's discuss' of American foieign policy basoB a concept of continentalism inf<"* tive and helpful. In reasoning from the standpoint ecology, Dr. Lundberg keeps his'* squarely on the ground. Here we J a welcome relief from the fane11 flights of our amateur UNESCO! ented ecologists.

I greatly appreciate your willingness to print this summary. I agree heartily vith the expressed purpose of your magazine, which la dedicated to "arousing public interest in important current events and stimulating individual participation In the shaping of public policy." I have seen.rather Infrequently, copies of your magazine. I think you have, generally speaking, accomplished your objective, and in doing so have rendered a very distinct beneficial service in bringing discussions of Important Issues to the knowledge of the American people. As oftentimes happens in reporting radio interviews, some inaccuracies have crept into the summary which you printed of the interview with me. On pa^e 29, at the end of the fir3t full paragraph in the lefthand column, it is stated: "The project as authorized in the Senate bill will take between 10 and 35 years to complete and represent a total co6t of $1,900,000,000." This sum is' referred to as the total cost of S. 500, which was pa3sed by the Senate during the last session. The total sum as mentioned in the paragraph quoted is Inaccurate. What I intended to say, and what I believe 1 did say, was that the total cost of S. 500 would be $1,099,600,000. There are several other inaccuracies of a minor nature which I shall not attempt to correct at this time. Had I known this interview was to be reprinted tn part, I would have requested permission to see the transcript for the purpose of making whatever corrections were necessary. I think you will agree with me that the error which in effect added approximately $800,000,000 to the total cost was one which would create an unfavorable Ijnpression of the project's value. I should appreciate very much publication of this letter calling attention to this error. I I realize that the error would be easy enough to make by either the speaker, or the reporter of what was said.
