Russia, Youth and the Present Day World: Further Studies in Mental Hygiene: By Frankwood E. Williams. New York: Farrar & Rinehart, 1934. 263 p.

Review by:
Martin W. Peck

Made up for the most part of articles, radio talks and lectures published or delivered by the author within the last two years, supplemented and coördinated by a number of chapters prepared especially for the volume, Russia, Youth and the Present Day World suffers from its origin as far as unity and sequence are concerned, but profits by the repetition of the main thesis, driven home from various angles. Throughout the discussion three themes stand out in major relief. (1) An indictment of western civilization as a whole, or rather of some important principles underlying it, and as an alternative an enthusiastic endorsement of many features of the present social organization in Russia. (2) Emphasis on various aspects of mental hygiene in Russia and in other countries, especially the United States, to illustrate fundamental contrasts. (3) A vigorous and uncompromising championship of science versus religion.

Western civilization is built upon a foundation which has a fatal weakness in its cornerstone; to wit, a false concept of the nature of man.
