Mussolini's Roman Empire

By Denis Mack Smith
Viking, 1976
322 pp. $12.95

The author, who was a civil servant in India before the World War, served as Manchester Guardian correspondent in Ethiopia during the recent war and in 1937 helped evacuate children from Madrid. Though a Britisher, Mr. Garratt has many harsh things to say about the foreign policy his government has followed since the Manchurian affair of 1931. He finds Britain's behavior not only immoral but lacking in common sense, not only a betrayal of democracy but of the British Empire. The result of this mistaken policy has been, he holds, to give Mussolini the empire he coveted.
