The Deadly Parallel
The Deadly Parallel
By C. Hartley Grattan
Stackpole, 1939, 210 pp

Mr. Grattan's "deadly parallel" is -- as one would suspect from his "Why We Fought," published in 1929 -- the similarity between the propaganda methods used in the United States to get us into the World War and those allegedly being used now for presumably identical ends. Mr. Grattan is fiercely anti-British, condemns the present war as a mere struggle for power between conflicting imperialisms, and sees no American interest involved. Mr. Grattan might have made a better case for isolation were it not for some of his prejudices and the hurry in which he wrote.
