  4. Book ImageThe Truman-MacArthur Controversy and the Korean War

    John W. Spanier

    "The order not to bomb the Yalu bridges was the most indefensible and ill-conceived decision ever forced on a field commander in our nation's history....I will always believe that if the United States had issued a warning to the effect that any entry of the Chinese Communists in force into Korea would be considered an act of international war against the United States, that the Korean War would have been terminated with our advance north." General Douglas MacArthur in Reminiscences (1964) thus recalled the unyielding position he took in April, 1951, when President Truman relieved him of all his commands in the Far East for publicly opposing the policies of the United States government.More

  12. Book ImageWorld History of the Dance

    Curt Sachs

    This book is the most comprehensive history to appear before the public of the art which has been so fundamental an expression in every period of human history.

    Crane Brinton

If he is correct, then nationalism and liberalism as we have known them in the past are doomed. A new and perhaps a better order and conditioning of life are on the way. This book attempts to justify historically the coming of great change—the same great change that was prophesied by William Morris in England, more than half a century ago.” —The New York TimesMore

  15. Book ImageMan and Crisis

    José Ortega y Gasset, Mildred Adams

    “A worthy companion of the author’s The Revolt of the Masses. Both books are marked by the brilliance, originality, and depth of the author’s interpretation of the crisis of our age and of the basic historical processes.” —Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social ScienceMore
