Facing Reality: From World Federalism to the CIA

By Cord Meyer

Harper, 1980, 416 pp.

This is, in effect, two books. The first is a fascinating autobiography tracing Cord Meyer's logical progression from badly wounded Marine Corps officer to fervent leader of the World Federalist movement after World War II to fervent CIA official and sophisticated cold warrior. The second book is a long and uninspired editorial on the menace of Russia's new "geopolitical offensive."
