Europe, the United States,
and the Future of Western Civilization

Dawson in his book, appropriately titled, Understanding Europe, 1952,
provides reflections on the common problems of Europe, America, and Western
civilization.  It would be worthwhile to read his reflections before coming
to the meeting.
