Qui Sera Maître? Europe Ou Amérique?
Qui Sera Maître? Europe Ou Amérique?
By Lucien Romier
Hachette, 1927, pp

Perhaps the outstanding book on America since the publication of André Siegfried's volume. The writer is well-known as a critic and essayist in the field of modern economics, and in this book stresses throughout the economic basis in American life. He draws a careful distinction between the cultural composition of the United States and that of most European countries, and shows how our peculiar economic advantages have made possible the growth of a unified state. While admitting our superiority in matters of business and industrial production, he stresses the fact that in the long run the victory as between Europe and America will depend largely upon the spiritual factors. Taken by and large, an extremely interesting and worthwhile study.
