The article discusses the book India and the Awakening East, by Eleanor Roosevelt. In this book Roosevelt set herself a goal, an examination of the social scourges enveloping the Middle East, Pakistan and India. En route, she called at Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, where she paused long enough to analyze the social and political soil of the backward Arab world, and her report does not skim over the harsh facts of reality. Prosperity can come when the Arab leaders decide that they can and will live in peace with the more modern state of Israel. Half of the book is devoted to India.
