Dr. DuBois voices his disappointment over the failure of the Dumbarton Oaks proposals to tackle the problem of colonial peoples -- a disappointment which the San Francisco Charter can scarcely have alleviated. His survey of the whole question of dependent peoples, among whom he includes almost every country except the Great Powers, is so brief and episodic that his book constitutes little more than an anti-imperialist -- especially an anti-British -- tract.
