Challenge of the Post-Geneva World

Stevenson, Adlai E.
November 1955
New Republic;11/14/55, Vol. 133 Issue 20, p17
The article focuses on the book "The New Dimensions of Peace," by Chester Bowles. The book now presents his mature reflections about the challenge confronting the U.S. in the post-Geneva world. In the competition for this revolution, the Communists, as the copyright-owners on modern revolution, would seem to enjoy an advantage. But Bowles believes that the American Revolution still has relevance in the twentieth century and that, properly applied, it can bring peace and abundance to the world in a way, which Communism never can. It seems to the author that Ambassador Bowles has summed up in this book many of the essentials of a genuinely democratic and affirmative foreign policy.
