Public Understanding and Foreign Policy

Straight, Michael
February 1955
New Republic;2/14/55, Vol. 132 Issue 7, p18
The article evaluates the novel "Common Sense and World Affairs," by Dorothy Fosdick. Fosdick takes it for granted that the citizens of the United States will insist on shaping the broader outlines of their government's foreign policy. Fosdick believes that the foreign policy must be held in expert hands. She believes that principles tell how to feel and how not to act, and what to look for. Foster has provided guidelines in the book for the U.S. citizens to judge the government policy.
