ABSTRACT
The article presents information about several books. The books are: "No Flies in China," by George Stafford Gale, "Atoms for Peace," by David O. Woodbury and "They Thought They Were Free," by Milton Mayer. They Thought They Were Free, is a fascinating biography of the German people under the German dictator Adolf Hitler, from 1933 to 1945, examined with deep perception, wry humor, and a genuine humility in the face of the problem of human evil. There is fine writing in Gale's book, and realism, to offset the sentimentality that clings to the image of the Peking regime in Great Britain.
