UNTIL WORLD \WAR II,
Latin America was a com-
parativelv little known and
neglected part nf the world,
politically and otherwise.
Even Moscow, embroiled in
its old world conflicts, paid
little atteCition to the area.
The post-war era, ho' eve'er,
has brought about a visible
intensification of CuinnUi-

as it works in one area of the
globe, but as a comprehensive sur-
vey of Latin America's complex
modern history, much of which has
been only sketchily recorded here.
The author's incisive analysis
helps to dispel sbme widely-held
misconceptions about Latin Amer-
ica. One is that popular discontent
is due primarily in Latin America
:. it is elsewhere to economic
back.'ardness, poverty, and an un-
economic system of land holdings.
While economic actors are impor-
tant, they are only part of the
story In Professor Alexander's
view. discontent stems also from
such factors as Ii a basic need for
changes in the social structure

HARBINGER OF PEACE
A United States Satellite is circling the earth this week-end.
Inevitably, says the .New-York Times, the Explorer satellite will
become an element in the political and propaganda war which is so
central a feature of our time. The Soviet Union assured this conse-
quence when it chose to exploit its own previous two sputniks as
symbols of its military power, threatening bluntly that the same ro-
ckets that sent the sputniks into space could deliver hydrogen bombs
anywhere on the earth's surface.
X X X X M
-Yet it was not for purposes of w'ar that the Explorer was shot into
space last Friday night. President Eisenhower has already made clear
that it is the purpose of U.S. foreign policy to make the cosmos an
area of peace rather than an arena for the combat of nations.
*Space has now been internationalized in the sense that man-made
satellites of two nations are now,traveling through it at enormous

Throughout South America, the
Communists have not hesitated in
past years to hlep perpetuate these
feudal elements by cooperating
with established dictatorships ort
with governments having totalita-

was their support of the dictator
