A former Assistant Secretary of State, responsible for the American international information program, including the Voice of America, reflects on his experiences in this field, discusses the problems involved in the "war of ideas," and makes a number of proposals for the more successful prosecution of this war. While not making excessive claims for the power of propaganda, he presents a strong case for the necessity of an efficient and well-ordered handling of our information programs.
