The General and the President

By Richard H. Rovere and Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr
Farrar, Straus, 1951
336 pp. $3.75

The two authors, a historian and a New Yorker staff writer, have combined their talents to create an exceedingly readable and, so far as the subject permits, lucid account of the MacArthur controversy. While critical of the General's rôle, they are primarily concerned with trying to seek out the reasons why the Far Eastern issue has been such a tempestuous and explosive one in American public life.
