Mr. Ziff not only has an axe to grind, but he wields it with a strong arm. Much of what he says about the realities of international intercourse has been said before, if not as pungently. He is hard on various peace-planners, such as Streit and Culbertson, but nevertheless comes up with a blueprint of his own. This provides, not only for the dismantling of Germany, but for dividing up the world into five "Power Aggregates" -- an enlarged Russia; a European union; an Oriental union; a Western union to include the Americas, the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand and sundry islands; and a mandated area in Central and Southern Africa. Readers will take this nostrum at their own risk!
