($12.95) As the United Stales gets more involved in world power politics daily, it could learn m*jch from the consummate artistry of the most skilled practioner of diplomacy in its (Olden age -- Charles Maurice d* Talleyrand-Perigord. Talleyrand's fanUly was one of the oldest in France, whose members had been conspicuous in the crowning of monr.-chs since the 10th century. He was arilliant, realistic and thorough- y venal. Probably no one in modern times has managed to serve both his country and himself so well. Jean Orieux, a h'rench popular writer of his- .ory, has told his story absorb- ngly, with allowances for some 'lamboyancc. The subtitle, "The Art Of Survival." is well chosen. Talleyrand hail an aristocratically suppressed resentment lack of affection his FASCINATING KIDNAP TALE ROSEBUD. By Joan Hemingway Paul Bonnccarrere. Morrow. 277 Pages. S6.95. As an action-adventure story lhal grabs the reader at the start and carries him swillly along to the inevitable violent end, "Rosebud" is one of Ihe best of the kind to come along in same time. Never mind lhat the characters who play the major roles in this bloody talc are little more t h a n stick figures who go through their paces an'd then relire from the scene without stirring the fainlest emotions in the reader. The story is I h e thing, and it's a slickly plotted, last-moving adventure. ' "Rosebud" is the name of ,, luxury yacht. On the yacht are live young women -- four of them related lo men of wealth and power. Drawing from con temporary' events, (he authors nave the young women seized -- after a good deal of bloodshed -- by a group of terrorists. The terrorists, unknowingly manipulated by an evil genius, take the girls to a near-impos- iible-lo-fmd hiding place and then begin to m a k e Ihe demands which, if followed, will The demands sem relatively innocuous but as they actuate it can be seen lhat they lead to one major goal -- de- tate of Israel.

Cyrus Sulzborger of the Ne\ York Times has a rare knacl for combining a scholar's in sight with an able journalist' facility to make himself clea on matters that are enormous!;, complex. Agree with him o not. he's a stimulating fellow ti read. This slim little opus explore prospects of the long-developini clash between the world's twi immense Communist nations Ihe Soviet Union and Ihe Chi ncse People's Republic. Most o it Snlzberger has said in dis palches lo his newspaper fron innumerable world capitals, bu by bringing it logether like this he offers an absorbing recapitu lation of informed opinion on subject he judges will be fa more important in shaping his lory than Watergate or th squabbles of Arabs and 1 raelis. There is much of the "1 tolc him" and "he told me" in Sulz berger's relaying of the view of the great and near-great hi has interviewed. However, it' understandable in the case o one who has known so man, lumimiries and it is balance! by his expert backgrounding o the situations he discusses. Among the points Sulzberge makes: lhat the United State military was unique in failing to realize, as late as 1966, tha Ihe Russians and Chinese liar reached a parting of Ihe ways and lhat the Russians probablj will avoid military intervention in China. With regard lo the latte point, Sulzbergcr Ihinks Mos cow wants to wail until Mat perhaps Chou are dead anc then try long-distance subver sion. He notes that Chou took due note of a Kremlin pre diction thai "healthy forces' would emerge in China, "mean ing lhat a pro-Moscow faction will take over." Sulzberger doesn't venture a guess wheth er (he Russian prediction has prospecls of coming true.

Brennan (Signet -- $1.50) Brennan presents an interest ing--if rather farfetched--idea of why and how the Third Reich became anathema to all civiliz ed nations. The thesis of the "Occul Reich" is that Hitler practiced and actually harnessed the po wers of black magic in his plan to conquer the world. The Fuhrer was precognilive says Brennan and his enlire upper echelon of the Nazi Part actively practiced witchcraft He presents documentation witches in Germany, Brennar says Hider assured himself ol uninterrupted power. He just eliminated anyone who could have been a rival. Brennan also says the slaugh tcr of six million Jews was done as a sacrifice to the black gods of darkness. The Xazis also, he says, were contact '.vith Tibet. This is v e r i f i e d , according to the author, by the mysterious Tibetan corpses found in Berlin by the Russians when the city fell in He also says the German search for the master race was founded in a search for mythical l a n d s of Thule, Atlantis and Lemuria.
