This selection of speeches and articles turned out by the U.S. Ambassador to India from 1963 to 1969 is fresh, informative, and pertinent, documenting as it does the range and intensity of the American government's interest in the problems of a developing country. "It is clear that when Ambassador Bowles stressed the crucial importance of the land ownership and rural poverty problems for India and for the developing countries generally, he went intuitively to the very root of the difficulty. . . . It is a cardinal virtue of this warm-hearted man's approach to the problems . . . that he sees them, not primarily in terms of savings, investment, and other economic functions and concepts, but in terms of the human beings whose needs, interests, and dignity must above all else be served."-Saturday Review "A valuable record of a part of his distinguished public career, for which both his country and the country of his mission should be grateful."-Journal of Developing Areas
