Strange Lands and Friendly People
Strange Lands and Friendly People
By William O. Douglas
Harper, 1951, 336 pp.

Associate Supreme Court Justice Douglas' report on two journeys to the Near and Middle East in 1949 and 1950 is highly readable as a travel narrative, but its principal interest lies in his exposition of the basic problems besetting the area, the shortcomings of American attitudes and policy, and the types of social and economic measures which he sees to be required.
