The peace has yet to be won, and pressing problems of armaments still confront the United States and the United Nations. How shall Germany be prevented from re-arming? What shall be the form of international control of atomic energy for military purposes? To what degree, indeed, can proponents of disarmament hope to attain their objectives in the face of conflicting national interests?
