A Time Is Born
A Time Is Born
By Garet Garrett
Putnam, 1944, 234 pp.

Mr. Garrett, who was once an editorial writer for the Saturday Evening Post, has written a book which is broad and deep. In essence, he sees in the remarkable scientific discoveries of the age a key that will open to all people, not merely a chosen few, the abundance of food and other things for which the "have-not" nations have previously gone to war. Mr. Garrett is plausible but fails to perceive that economic motives do not alone explain why nation has fought nation.
