Excerpt

In prefaces it is customary to acknowledge the assistance received from various sources and to conclude by absolving everyone save the author from culpability for the final result. Both operations are more than perfunctory in the present instance. Generous aid has come from many quarters. Since very controversial issues of policy are involved, the responsibility of the author for the outcome is correspondingly increased.

Among those who have been or are members of the staff of CED I am especially aware of the encouragement and help coming from Theodore O. Yntema, Howard B. Myers, Gardiner C. Means, Herbert Stein, Robert F. Lenhart, and Sylvia Stone. The discussions of the CED committee, under the chairmanship of Fred Lazarus, Jr., which issued a policy statement on the subject, were richly informative and suggestive. The members of this committee were Messrs. William Benton, James F. Brownlee, S. Sloan Colt, Gardner Cowles, John M. Hancock, Robert Heller, Philip D. Reed, Beardsley Ruml, Sidney J. Weinberg, W. Walter Williams, and Dr. Sarah G. Blanding. The ground was cleared by a preliminary group initiated by Beardsley Ruml, which included Messrs. Hiland G. Batcheller, Herbert Emmerich, William Tudor Gardiner, Harry Scherman, and Joseph E. McLean. In the preparation of Chapter VI, dealing with the courts, I have relied heavily upon Adam Yarmolinsky, of the New York Bar. I have benefited, though perhaps not sufficiently, from many criticisms, notably by Professor Myres S. McDougal and Ralph Brown, Yale Law School; Professor James L. McCamy, Chairman, Department of Political Science, University of Wisconsin; Professor Joseph E. McLean, Political Scientist, Princeton University . . .
