The Study of Man: Marxism & the Colonial Revolt
The Western world is facing two great revolutionary currents-the Marxist onslaught, represented chiefly by Soviet and Chinese Communism, and the colonial revolt, aimed at throwing off Western control where it still exists in non-Western areas. How can we assess the significance of these revolutionary currents? Do they reflect some deep-lying defect in Western institutions, some intolerable iniquity ingrained in these institutions and curable only by revolution? And will the two currents finally merge, confronting the Western world with an overwhelming and mortal challenge?
Three significant books dealing with these revolutionary challenges from different viewpoints have recently appeared. Taken together, they throw considerable light on the problems involved.
