For all Americans interested in knowing how they are actually ruled and whether constitutional government can endure, this will prove to be a central question of our time. In AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY IN THE MAKING, 1932~1940, Charles A. Beard presented a record of Franklin D. Roosevelt's statements to the American people under the heading of foreign policy, up to the presidential campaign of 1940. In PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT AND THE COMING OF THE WAR 1941, Mr. Beard deals with President Roosevelt's personal direction of foreign affairs in the year that brought the war, and the steps by which the United States became involved. To prepare himself for this task,Mr. Beard read and analyzed the millions of words in the hearings and exhibits published by the Joint Committee of Congress on Pearl Harbor, and additional millions of words in other documents and sources pertinent to the subject. In the pages of this book he sets forth his findings, demonstrating the contrast between the appearances created by official words spoken to the American public and the realities of official actions taken in 1941, as disclosed in authentic documents that were hidden from the public at the time. To his summary of evidence, Mr. Beard adds a final chapter giving his judgment on the meaning and consequences of the record, in terms of constitutional government and democratic processes of government. The result is a revealing and startling book. It is a contribution to the history of the fateful year 1941. Still more important for the American people is its bearing on the prospects of American institutions; on the power of Congress and the President in the conduct of foreign affairs and in the making of foreign commitments; and on the possibilities of maintaining any effective popular control over private decisions and secret agreements of the Executive, involving the life and death of the Re public as established by the Constitution.
