ABSTRACT
This article focuses on foreign relations of France. The Brussels conference promises to be as important in the evolution of a New Europe as the Geneva conference was in relation to Asia. In any event the meeting of the foreign ministers of the six nations of Little Europe will almost certainly decide the future part of France in the European pattern. And what comes out of the Brussels conference will be settled largely by the face-to-face meetings of Konrad Adenauer, West Germany's grand old man, and Pierre Mendes-France, the dynamic young thinker and doer of a new France in process of becoming.
