The Philosophy of Peace
The Philosophy of Peace
By John Somerville
Gaer, 1949, 264 pp

A teacher of philosophy argues that since the Nazi-Fascists meant war, their enemies, the Communists of Soviet Russia, are not aggressive. He sees our problem, then, as being limited to getting rid of Franco and Peron, and recognizing Russia as a friend of peace. He makes quite a point of the American treatment of racial minorities and Britain's shortcomings in the colonial field, but finds no flaw in Soviet policy toward the rights of individuals and Soviet treatment of the satellite peoples.
