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."
