That being so, there's, if something, an elevated call for upon the author to workout cautious judgment in his examine, and in his exposition of the topic. This author can merely wish that he has discharged this responsi­ bility to the measure that his efforts could have clarified a few concerns and that what he has set on paper can be of a few tips to others. This author has tried to be as goal as attainable in his inter­ pretations, and he has made no try to protect the coverage of any country. In so doing, he's weil conscious of the truth that for broader coverage purposes, a few of the perspectives expressed herein can't be officiaily settle for­ ed as bases for action.
