About this title:


In 1952, Dr. Albert Schweitzer was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work as a medical missionary in Africa. At that point, his career included--as well as medicine--theology, music and philosophy. His final quest was to wake the public to the dangers of nuclear war.

Norman Cousins visited Schweitzer in Africa. The friendship that grew from this meeting gave rise to a rich correspondence, most of it dealing with the arms race.

That correspondence forms the core of this volume, though letters from Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Jawaharlal Nehru and Nikita Kruschev are included.

"The body of letters is deeply revealing, intrinsically interesting and of profound historical significance." (Publisher's Source)
