Europe Will Not Wait: A Warning and a Way Out - [Harold] Anthony NuttingHollis & Carter, 1960, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with light spotting to the same. Price Clipped. Tanning and light spotting to the start and finish, bright and clean otherwise.
From the cover: “As the vista opens on a series of summit talks and dealings between powerful economic groups of nations, Mr. Nutting’s book assumes a special relevance.
He calls it A Warning and a Way Out. The Warning stems from his close personal experience of Great Britain’s refusal since 1945 to respond to the call for leadership of the European revival. It is not too late to learn from mistakes, but they must first be fully understood — and Mr. Nutting sees to it that they are.
What is the Way Out, now that Europe has virtually decided to unite without Great Britain? In the face of mounting competition from Russia and Asia this division could mean disaster.
Mr. Nutting’s solution is a bold one. He would heal the division with a much wider political and economic coalition of the Commonwealth and the Common Market — and ultimately the U.S.A. Such a grouping is the only one large enough and flexible enough to meet the Soviet bloc on equal terms.
In an illuminating ‘Atomic Postscript’, Mr. Nutting suggests an Anglo-European nuclear pool as the essential military reinforcement for this community of the free world.”
