Whitehall, London: Royal United Service Institution, 1969. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 73,  pages. Footnotes. Ink notation on the Table of Contents page. Cover has some wear and soiling. Topics covered include The New Context of Policy; Obligations Outside Europe; Britain in Europe; Instruments of Strategic Deterrence; Local War Forces; The Economic Outlays; and Britain's European Future. The author asserts that Britain has little alternative to increasing dependence on the United States other than to begin, first in the Mediterranean and then perhaps elsewhere, the cultivation of a stronger tradition of cooperation with Britain's continental neighbors. A move in this direction would be in line with the coordination of policies towards the 'Third World' that would stem from the greater economic integration of Western Europe. It would also be in line with the pronounced tendency for Commonwealth links to become ever weaker and less exclusive. The emergence of a Western European identity would give the British armed forces a heightened sense of purpose. Still more important is the prospect that a stable European pillar within the Western Alliance could do an immense amount, both materially and in less tangible respects, to preserve a modicum of order and sanity in what threatens to become an ever more bitter and divided world.

Frank deftly combines the practical, the anecdotal, and the historical context into a spellbinding and informative read. This is the original edition and as such presents a portrait of Jewish Europe at the end of the 20th Century, not all that far removed from the effects of the Holocaust and still able to provide a baseline to document and illuminate the changes that have occurred in the decades since this was first published. This Travel Guide will introduce the reader to areas that survived the devastating effects of the War. This book is a compendium of practical travel information, intriguing stories, and fascinating inquiries into Jewish contributions to European History.
