ABSTRACT
The article discusses the book "Fire in the Ashes," by Theodore White. The author's discussion of Europe is limited to three nations namely France, Germany and Britain. He does not explain from what basic traits of character, society and tradition those evils arise. Yet France remains the heart of his hopes for Europe. The author does not present the facts in support of a continuous argument. Nor does he draw any theory from the facts he presents. Because his book is narrative rather than analytical in style, it is not a substitute for analysis of Europe's problem.
