Foreign Policy without Fear
Foreign Policy without Fear

Feeling that American policy is excessively fear-ridden, a quality which arouses foreign mistrust and apprehension, Mrs. Dean undertakes with a good deal of persuasiveness to increase American awareness of the "realities of world affairs," and to show that other nations may quite legitimately have differing points of view. Her favorite spokesman, "our non-Communist friends abroad," is, however, a rather synthetic creation, and at times the book gives inadequate weight to the very real occasion for many American fears.
