Thomas A. BaIley and the thigh school
By WALTER SHAPIRO
Democrats vs. Republicans:
The Continuing Clash, by
Thomas A. Bailey. Meredith
Thomas A. Bailey wrote my
high school American history
textbook, The American Pa-
geant. This bulky, red book was
a good example of the genre-
amply equipped with visual
aids, soothing generalizations,
clear causal connections and a
lively narrative which effec-
tively inculcated political val-
It was this lively narrative
prose style which makes me
remember the book so vividly.
After all, how can anyone for-
get a book with sentences like,
"The men of Nippon made hay
while the rising sun shone."
Bailey, a diplomatic historian
from Stanford University, has
now applied these skills which
made him so effective in the
high schools to the task of cre-
ating an election year book os-
tensibly for an adult audience.
Implicitly fore-seeing a John-
son-Nixon electoral tilt, Bailey
has rushed into print "to show
that the differences between
the Democrats and their op-
ponents . . . have always been
Such is the rationale for 135
pages of narrative history of
Presidential politics in this
country, which reads as if Bai-
ley had all but cribbed it from
his high school text.
There is little in the way of
substantial analysis or any at-
tempt at thematic development,
except that Bailey continually
depicts the big government-
small government dichotomy in
terms harking back to Hamili-
tion and Jefferson. For exam-
ple, Bailey generalizes, "Frank-
lin Roosevelt was fully pre-
pared to use Hamilitonian
means to achieve Jeffersonian
But in general Bailey's his-
toriography is of the inoffen-
sive, descriptive sort. However,
Bailey makes an exception for
the Radical Republicans who
obstinately refused to accept
consensual two party politics.
Bailey first brandishes the
crowning insult in his vocabu-
lary against these Reconstruc-
tion Republicans by calling
them "ultra-conservatives." He
elaborates more fully in a foot-
note, -"These Radical Republi-
Feeding the world by combing the seas
can extremists of the 'radical
right' bear certain resemblances
to the Republican Goldwater-
ites of 1964."
While all this vituperation
is undoubtedly emotionally
therapeutic for the Stanford
historian, it is exceedingly dif-
ficult to fathom his rationale
for these striking labels.
One would think rather that
the ultra-conservatives of the
1860's were those who were
trying to keep the slave system
intact in all but name and not
those who wanted to use eman-
cipation to transform the so-
cial structure of the South.
Appended onto to the narra-
tive is a short section in which
Bailey attempts to present his
case for "the virtues of the two
His argument is straight for-
ward. "Substantial differences
have always existed between the
major parties . . . Otherwise
parties woud not exist or per-
sist . . . " In short, the old ra-
tionale of simplistic political
science - what exists is good
because it exists.
Yet, despite this build-up,
the only real differences which
Bailey can perceive between the
two parties are modifications
of the old adage that the Rep-
ublicans are the party of the
FICTION and NO
big business and the. Demo-
crats are for the working man.
Even if one accepts Bailey's
contention that there were and
still are significant differences
between the two parties, the
book still leaves a more fund-
amental question unanswered.
And that is whether the differ-
ences between the Democrats
and the Republicans are at all
relevant to the problems facing
the country today.
No amount of historical evi-
dence can hide the glaring real-
ity that the collapse of the lib-
eral civil rights movement has
left both parties bereft of any
solutions to the urban morass.
It is not that important that
we are in Vietnam because of
the traditional international-
ism of the Democrats or because
of the fervent anti-Communism
of the Republicans. The real
problem is that there are few
if any ideas in either party as
to how America can relinquish
its self-appointed role as the
world's great counterrevolu-
Bailey's big mistake with this
book was trying to write for an
adult audience. If only it were
republished in an inexpensive
edition, it could be a real best-
seller at the junior high school

Harvest of the Sea, by John
Bardach. Harper & Row,
Since the end of the 18th
century, population growth has
been a topic of heated debate
among social and biological
After Malthus was "proved"
wrong when the food supply
held up through the early part
of the 19th century, the old no-
tion that the food supply
would more or, less keep up
with a growing population once
again came into the fore.
In recent years, it has become
clear that the earth is rapidly
approaching a human satura-
tion point. There are now some
three billion human beings in-
habiting the planet and, in the
underdeveloped areas of the
world, the number is growing
phenomenally. More scientists
today believe that drastic steps
must be taken to check this
population growth if the world
is not to plunge into subsist-
ence economy in 20 years.
There remain, however, in-
dividuals who believe that man
has always found new sources
of fodd to feed new mouths
in the past, and will continue to
do so indefinitely on into the
future. These optimists, rec-
ognizing the limited amount of
arable land available and the
diminishing returns whichre-
sult from increasing the inten-
sity of cultivation beyond a cer-
tain point, have tended to look
to the sea as the provider of
the vast quantities of resources
needed to support the growing
In Harvest of the Sea, Prof.
John Bardach does much to
dispel the comfortable notion
that the sea, if only its re-
sources were tapped, could pro-
vide food, raw materials and
power for an infinitely large
number of people.
Bardach, a professor of fish-
eries in the natural resources
school and a member of the
Vice President's Council on Ma-
rine Resources and Engineer-
ing Development, quotes oce-
anographer John Ryther as
saying, "The open sea is a des-
ert compared to moderately
fertile land." There are only a
few areas on the vast expanse
of the seas, such as the con-
tinental shelf of North America
and an area of the Pacific off
the coast of Peru, where com-
mercial fisheries are economic-
While dismissing the oceans
as a boundless source of food,
Bardach does suggest ways in
which the "harvest of the sea"
can be improved.
After some preliminery shil-
ly-shallying by the Food and
Drug Administration, fish pro-
tein concentrate (FPC) a white,
tasteless, almost odorless pure
protein made from "garbage"
fish such as alewives, has been
ruled fit for consumption. FPC
may be a great help in supple-
menting protein-poor diets, al-
though the primary food prob-
lem of the world is not a short-
age of protein but a shortage
Bardach, a gifted popularizer,
writes with a' bright, conver-
sational and often witty style.
He rises to eloquence when de-
ploring the mess man has made
of inland waterways and coast-
al areas by dumping wastes.
Although the bulk of the work
is taken up with semi-technical
descriptions of man attempts
at exporing and harvesting the
sea, its real virtue lies.with the
implicit caveat - like all other
resources, the sea can only be
a limited provider.

A book-look at nature
By DANIEL OKRENT
In Wildness is the Preservation of the World, words by
H. D. Thoreau, photos by Eliot Porter. Sierra Club and Bal-
lantine Books, $3.95.
For quite a number of years, the Sierra Club has been the
nation's most active conservationist group.- Fighting for usually
good causes (notable exception: an attempt to stop the damming
of a Kentucky river that swells each spring and causes thousands
of dollars of flood damage), they mount their canpaign to pre-
serve America's natural gifts on a number of fronts. Most rec-
ognizable of these are some avid lobbying campaigns, but I think
,the most effective means of reaching the public is through a
recently heightened publication drive.
An example of Sierra's most effective on-paper arguments
can be found on the pages of this wondrous paperback volume,
photographed by an ex-physician who has become so consumed
in his devotion to nature, he manages to produce some of the
most breathtaking color pictures that I have ever seen.
The first release in what is hoped to be a long-standing
relationship with Ballantine, In Wildness is the Preservation of
the World is a "popularly-priced" copy of Sierra's original, large-
format $25 edition. In joining with Ballantine, the club is pre-
senting a true service to those who could not afford the more
Accompanying Porter's photographs, which appear on every
lefthand page, are excerpts from Thoreau, each specifically ad-
dressed to the subject of the facing photo. Together, the visual
and the literary comprise an elegant and eloquent plea for all
of us to stop and look before we destroy.
There is no stopping short in offering a recommendation for
this book. I only suggest that you stop at a bookstore, pick up
a copy and turn to any page at random. After looking at what it
has to offer, you will feel compelled to buy it.

A PENGUIN PAPERBACK ORIGINAL
WHY THE DRAFT? is a book that every thoughtful
American will want to read, consider and discuss in
this important election year.
Seven young political economists take a critical but
objective look at the draft in all its aspects and at
the alternatives to it. They conclude that conscrip-
tion in any form is inequitable and then examine in
detail the advantages and.problems of a volunteer
"This is an excellent piece of work by a group of
men of sound professional training and of the rele-
vant age and concern. Policy on the draft has always
been made by the old and the aging, and never so
