Publisher's description: Freedom demands responsibility. In this cogent, penetrating analysis of the changing state of Western democracies, Walter Lippmann, dean of political news columnists, presents a lucid, balanced summary of the crucial decisions facing every thoughtful 20th century citizen. He urges free men everywhere to take a lively, responsible interest in their government in order to preserve their liberties and defend themselves against totalitarianism.
