Introduction by Linus Pauling.
"In the political desolation and spiritual uncertainty that followed World War I, the 'spectre' of communism rose to confront troubled governments throughout the world. Since 1917, communism has been the 'great fear' in American life; and since 1946, Anti-Communism has been the great purpose of our national existence and a basic tenet of U.S. foreign and domestic policy.
"The results of this new credo, as the author points out, have been disastrous for our world leadership. This provocative book, based upon solid research, demands a fresh reappraisal of America's posture in world affairs."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
