Neither War Nor Peace
Neither War Nor Peace
By Hugh Seton-Watson
Praeger, 1960, 504 pp

This excellent survey of the troubled landscape of contemporary world politics centers on the forces of totalitarianism and nationalism and their disruptive impact. The subject is a vast one but, as Mr. Seton-Watson correctly observes, while a single author can see only part of the picture, this disadvantage can be outweighed --as it is in this case--by a unity of approach to world problems. As in his earlier works on Eastern Europe and Communism, the author writes both for the general reader and the specialist, and has much to say to both.
