Ceylon: Dilemmas of a New Nation


The fate of the newly independent nation is absorbing the attention of statesmen and scholars. This comprehensive study of Ceylon since its independence in 1947 provides a case study of the fundamental issues in these new Asian and African nations. Mr. Wriggins, who spent two years in Ceylon, presents the full historic, economic, political, and social background. He discusses the current political situation in Ceylon, the effect of universal franchise, the increasing communal disorders, the resulting dilemma of representative government, the search for an adequate foreign policy. His findings, which are based on extensive on-the-spot research, illuminate the crucial problem of political change.
