Power Through Purpose
By Thomas I. Cook and Malcolm Moos
Johns Hopkins Press, 1954, 216 pp

After giving the setting of the present bipolar international conflict, the authors, professors of political science at Johns Hopkins, develop their criticism of certain features of the American approach to foreign affairs--isolationism, individualism, legalism and the idea of an exclusive national interest. In conclusion they recommend as the guiding strategy "encouraging germs of discontent within the Soviet Union and its satellites wherever possible, and to the extent possible."
