The State of Europe

Excerpt

I should like the readers of this book to know that I am acutely aware of both the limitations inherent in the subject and my own personal limitations. Asking readers to accept as cut and dried my verdicts on so fluid and complex a continent as Europe today, over such an immediate period as the four postwar years, and in such emotional circumstances as surround the Cold War, would be brash indeed. Wherefore I would beg readers to accept the analysis and conclusions for what they are intended to be: working hypotheses, arrived at conscientiously and rechecked and retested at every opportunity--but ever subject to alteration if a longer perspective and new evidence suggest the need for it.
