This temperate book is a welcome relief to much of the doctrinaire literature of recent years. Mrs. Wootton defines her terms sensibly and shows that such things as freedom and planning have many facets and that not all of their values are of the same magnitude. She believes that economic planning by the state, properly conceived and executed, will protect the essential freedoms in our modern industrial society.
