The size of this little volume belies not only its weightiness but also its scope. The author succinctly analyzes government in terms of the response by the governed. What is achieved in brevity is somewhat lost in clarity; what amounts to an extended essay embraces not a little that requires interlineation by the reader. To those not easily frightened, however, there is much that is rewarding in Mr. Hollister's work.
