U. S. War Aims
U. S. War Aims
By Walter Lippmann
Little, Brown, 1944, 235 pp

In this sequel to his "U. S. Foreign Policy" Mr. Lippmann projects his analysis into the future. He finds that by the logic of history and geography there exist -- already in being or potentially -- four regional orbits: Atlantic, Russian, Chinese and Hindu-Moslem. He is especially emphatic on the necessity for the Atlantic Community (North America and western Europe) to refrain from fratricidal war. He also envisages a Universal Society, but not a world government. His rejection of the latter is categorical, and with his rejection he delivers an attack on Woodrow Wilson and "Wilsonianism."
