"I Built a Temple for Peace." the Life of Eduard Benes
"I Built a Temple for Peace." the Life of Eduard Benes
By Edward B. Hitchcock
Harper, 1940, 364 pp.

This is an authorized biography of the Czech statesman. Mr. Hitchcock, an American newspaperman, is a confidant of Dr. Beneš and in the preparation of this book enjoyed the latter's close collaboration. The first part of the book is fuller than the section dealing with the last few years, perhaps because the passage of time has lent perspective to Beneš' early career.
