Within recent years Dr. Dallin has in rapid succession turned out three books on the Soviet Union and its foreign policy. The scope of the present volume is wider, but its focus is still on Russia and his attitude is still, of course, anti-Soviet.

He reposes small faith in the United Nations as an instrument of peace and in general his outlook is one that can only inspire gloom among his readers.
