15th Thousand. Second Large Impression. From the cover: “Here is a book which challenges you directly. It challenges you to face the problems before you, and to take vigorous action to preserve our heritage. History demands of us an especial greatness at this moment. We are forced to act, to make decisions whether we wish to or not. For the refusal to act is itself a decision. Are we going to implement the fair words, the fine promises, to all peoples? Or are we going to struggle to maintain old privileges, old inequalities, out of timidity, selfishness or pretended economic interest? Great as our problems are, we must rise to them, for this, if ever, is our time for greatness.”
