The West at Bay
The West at Bay
By Barbara Ward
Norton, 1948, 288 pp

Miss Ward, assistant editor of the authoritative London Economist, presents in this most timely volume a none-too-reassuring analysis of the state of the Western European nations. Indeed, she sees the salvation of that once dominant part of the world only in (1) closer cooperation among those nations, including Britain, but more in the economic and military than political realm; and (2) continued, even increased, support from America, not only through the Marshall Plan but by a revival of lend-lease -- and all this now, not at our leisure.
