Re John Strachey's review of Herman Kahn's Thinking about the Unthinkable. "According to Mr. Strachey, Herman Kahn advances three theses with which Mr. Strachey is in agreement: 1) There probably will be a thermo-nuclear war; 2) It will not be the end of civilization 3) After it, but not before, a world government will be created which will prevent further thermo-nuclear war." BR is "compelled" to agree to the first of his theses but the other two strike him as absurd.
