What are the goals of world communism ABLE SCHOLARS on the staff of the Foreign Policy Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania pooled their knowledge of world communism and produced a most challenging book Pro tracted Conflict Its from the Harper Press For my copy of it I am in the debt of a doctor friend in Des Moines Protracted Conflict is the name of this volume by Robert StrauszHupe William R Kint ner James E Dougherty and Alvin J Cottrell It concerns it self with the strategy the meth ods and the goals of the ideology spawned by Karl Marx and ap plied to Russia in
