Policy for the West

By Barbara Ward

Norton, 1951, 317 pp.

Miss Ward's thoughtful recommendations involve a balanced program of "containing" the Soviet Union, on the premise that it will not take a major risk; of maintaining economic and social stability at home, by utilizing the Keynesian precepts; and of improving the living standards of backward peoples, in the faith that this will be conducive to calm rather than turmoil.
