Review:

Twenty-nine years after its original publication...[it] retains all the freshness of its youth...much of the book's appeal lies in simple truthfulness...Lefever's treatise on how to conduct a responsible foreign policy that is also an ethical foreign policy strikes me as being more than fresh: It is positively...relevant.>>> (National Review)

His competence in both fields) he is trained theologian as well as a specialist in international affairs) and his practical shrewdness in politics, are evident on every page of this book... His fresh, unstereotyped way of thinking, together with the sober responsibility of his judgments, make the book absorbing reading as well as a valuable handbook for the informed citizen.>>> (Worldview)

...a brief, clear, and orderly statement of the principal tenets of what looks like an American school of political realism as understood from the standpoint of Biblical realism.>>>> (Review Of Politics)

...a brilliant new study...>>>> (Commonweal)

At a time when foreign policy issues like South Africa and Central America generate so much emotional steam, Ernest Lefever's Ethics and U.S. Foreign Policy provides a dose of much-needed, old-fashioned wisdom. Anyone interested in ethics and foreign policy would do well to read this book.>>> (Eternity)
