In 1981 the author was asked to deliver the Dimbleby Lecture, but due to perceived sensitivity of the lecture the BBC cancelled the broadcasting of the lecture. This booklet is not the actual lecture that he was going to give for the BBC but a corrected and extended to version which was delivered at Worcester City Guildhall on November 26, 1981. In the lecture Mr Thomson " ... is questioning the fundamental condition of contemporary life, the Cold War and the adversary posture of the two blocs. His analysis of our current predicament will, we believe, help the process of both disturbing peace and of restoring freedom to Europe." From the back panel. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
