Containment or Liberation?

By James Burnham
Day, 1953
256 pp. $3.50

Contending that the policy of "containment" is self-defeating, the author urges that the United States should explicitly aim for the liberation of the peoples and nations now enslaved by the Russian-centered Soviet state system, including the Russian people. Despite some telling criticisms of inconsistencies in the American position in recent decades, the logic of Mr. Burnham's line of reasoning is not impeccable and his temper at times outruns his argument.
