QuotationThis is chiefly to thank you for the books. The Wright Millses were both terrific, as usual. The one on the Latin American problem was clear and persuasive, though he himself admits it is oversimplified. But one must see the other side of the case always. That is the trouble, people do not want to be objective. The Salisbury book on Russia is most valuable. Again, one has to be always adjusting one's views and taking into account the rapid movement of events and current developments. I was impressed to note the depth of the division between Russia and Red China at the present time. Of course it makes sense.
