March 1952
New Republic;3/31/52, Vol. 126 Issue 13, p10
The article focuses on the isolationist attitudes of U.S. Senator Robert A. Taft, the son of William Howard Taft, the 27th U.S. president. It emphasizes on the question whether Taft's isolationism or obstructionism influences his views towards international affairs, which reflects his non-interest to anything that goes on abroad. Taft's basic concept of world organization is not related to the world in which people live, but in which he moves. Taft showed a negative attitude towards everything that pointed towards international mobilization and cooperation.
