TO EVERY AMERICAN
The launching of THE UNIVERSITY OF
MICHIGAN HISTORY OF THE MOD.
ERN WORLD is an important occasion for
all of us. Now more than ever before we
need to know as mxuch as we can about the
nations and peoples of our world. Only a
knowledge of their past will allow us to
understand their present motives - an un.
derstanding we must have to act in time to
preyent world catastrophe.
The volumes of THE UNIVERSITY OF
MICHIGAN HISTORY OF THE MOD-
ERN WORLD will make a significant con.
tribution to such 'a broadening of our
understanding. They are written by some of
the world's most eminent scholars, chosen
for their ability to interpret the past.
I am proud that the University of Michigan
is able to present this publishing program,
to add to the educational resources of our
nation, and to make a signal contribution to
world peace and understanding.

The superb 15-volume HISTORY OF THE MODERN WORLD has been written by outstanding world historians under the
guidance of Pulitzer Prize winning Allan Nevins and the Chairman of the Department of History at the University of Michigan,
Howard Ehrmann. Individually, or as a series, these unique histories will give a wealth of authority to your discussions of world
affairs with your classmates, your family, your informed friends, and your university teachers. These books belong on the shelves of
every person interested in what goes on behind the morning's headlines and in every home where knowledge is honored.
THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN HISTORY OF THE MODERN WORLD will consist of. some 15 volumes printed on fine
paper and beautifully bound in sturdy buckram stamped in silver and gold, and will run to three million words.
TODAY ALL OF US must take anxious account of events in Russia, try to grasp what is happening in Communist China, worry
over the prospects of democracy in Italy and Indo-China, and indeed all over the world. Now, when all thoughtful people know
that the United States has irrevocably accepted the leadership of the free people of the globe, we particularly recommend that
you take these volumes into your home, starting with the first four just becoming available to Founding Members. We especially
urge that those of us associated in any way with the University of Michigan give special consideration to the launching of this
monumental project in adult' education for a people which needs in this epoch of peril the kind of thoughtful study found in this
series.

ABOUT THE COUN'
RUSSIA AND THE SOVIET UNION
Russia looms menacingly in the world of today. Fifteen years
ago it was fighting for its existence against Hitler's legions; and
only a few centuries before it was a barbarian land filled with
feuding hordes. What is this nation, who are its people-above
all, how did it become what it is today, and what can we expect
of this vast totalitarian state in our world of tomorrow?
652 pages, 13 maps.
THE AUTHOR: WARREN B. WALSH serves the government as
an expert on Russian affairs and is Chairman of the Board of
Russian Studies at Syracuse University. Professor Walsh has
been able to provide this series with a supremely authoritative
and practical appraisal of Russia. Regular Price $10.00
LATIN AMERICA
Professor Rippy sees the Latin American nations as individuals
rather than, as adjuncts of Europe and North America. He.
writes dynamically of South America .. its physical environ-
ment, the swashbuckling era of the Conquistadores, the vicis-
situdes of the Hapsburgs and Bourbons, the struggle of
self-=government, and finally, the stirring revolutionary conti-
nent of today - a continent on the verge of becoming one of
the world's great centers of power and influence!
588 pages, 14 maps.
THE AUTHOR: J. FRED RIPPY, Professor of History at the
University of Chicago, has long taken an active part in Pan
American affairs, served as a delegate to Pan-American con-
ferences and traveled extensively throughout Latin America.

catch up with the West. Here is an authoritative volume by Q
