Subtitle:Who Shall Guard the Guardians? Porter Sargent Pub., Boston, 1959, 202pgs., index, end notes


Reviewer comments: Writing in 1959 the author is overwhelmed with the prospect of nuclear war, which he deems entirely possible, even likely, due to the fundamental nature of governments and rulers. The world was spared this catostrophy (so far) but his basic view of rulers remains valid.
