The theme of Dr. Windrich's study is the specific continuity of British Labor's international outlook over the past half-century, which in turn implies a negation of traditional continuity in governmental foreign policy regardless of party. Mr. Fitzsimons, dealing only with the period 1945-51, reaches the opposite conclusion --that the Labor Government followed the course marked out by its predecessor and thus maintained the essential continuity of British foreign policy.
