Henry Alfred Kissinger, say ,e authors of this ibvisk, jotir- alistic study, has more power nan any presidential adviser r secretary of state in the re- ublic's history, and he uses lat power to pursue a goal of ability in world affairs. If it sounds like a modest jal, it is because to Kissinger is the closest human beings an hope to come to real peace. student of 19th-century bal- ice ot power diplomacy, he es stability as the highest rm of international morality, ECOLOGY AND WAR UNE, by Frank Herbert (Ace $1.50) "Dune" is an ecological novel the far future set on a arid anet called Arrakis. Duke cto, his mistress, Jessica, and eir son, Paul, are given ntrol of the desert planet by e Emperor. His cousin, the Baron Har- onnen. has had control before nd intends to take it back. In der to do this, he attacks and 11s the Duke. Paul and his other, with the help of some the natives flee into the esert. Paul learns the ways of the esert folk and becomes Muad'- b, the prophet who leads tha eople in a revolt against the The spice, giant sand the desert, those who the authors say. If that's not ideal, it offers a chance for survival, anyway. Marvin and Bernard Kalb, Columbia Broadcasting System veterans and a couple of old pros m the journalism business, have produced a valuable study, not so much a biography of a man as the biography of a policy. The Kalbs's admiration of Kissinger comes through, but thev do not let it carry them away. They see his faults and limn them clearly. They are aware of his fallibilities and foibles and record them lucidly. That's value the v a l u e of such a study lies: a rounded picture of the man and his ideas, uncolored by the authors' private prejudices. It turns out to be absorbing and often exciting reading, which is saying a great deal for any book concerning itself with foreign policy. Stock Market Jumps Around, Finishes Higher arsh masters, reated by the onus found in ·ings wealth to xport it but too much use of is also habit forming. Herbert deftly creates a arsh world, hard people who now when to relax and when } be on guard. Muad'dib and is desert fighters conquer the linions of his cousin, the em- eror's special forces and even efeat the king in an attack n the emperor's ships. Paul, the Lisan al-Gaib, rinks some of the spice mix- ure and sees the possibilities a future. He realizes that is actions can change what may happen. "Dune" has several k e y secondary characters who add much to the story and by their actions or non-actions cause certain events to occur. While Paul or Muad'dib g a i n s strength among the desert folk le is also learning how to sur vive and how to make Arraki into a flowering paradise. This is the dream of th people. They do not expect to happen in their or thei Children's lifetimes-,. but at distant future. Herbert has also writte another novel with ecology a the theme. That one is "Th Green Brain" in which natur revolts when man tries to mak Kissinger's reputation rested on his book, "Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy," published in 1957. The work, though it stirred controversy, did attract attention from political leaders, among them the then vice president, Richard M. Nixon. Kissinger ' in the late 1950s had been a hard-liner, cold- warish, anti-Soviet. He won Pentagon approval with his suggestion that American military strategy base itself on tactical nuclear weapons. He rejected Secretary of State John Foster Dulles's "massive retaliation" theme as too risky, but met with flexible responses to thwart any attempt to take the world over piecemeal by aggression. "There was no question in his mind that the Russians intended to dominate the world and it was up to this country to try to stop it," the authors write. Kissinger, they recount, distrusted the concept of Soviet- American detente. K i s s i n g e r made wrong guesses on a number of occasions, changed his -outlook and views on a number of others, including the Vietnam war. But he wound up winning plaudits around the world for what had bitted by Bill Williams InWWNIiWItnHitlWiMNnWNfllll FATAL FLAW OF PILATE By VIRGIL TALBOT T H E WORD AND THE SWORD, by Then Lang (Dela cotte --$8.95) This novel, written in the style of "Ben Hur" and "The Robe," traces the last years of Pontius Pilate. It begins as Christian unrest begins to take shape in the form ot a carpen- ter-turncd-preacher, and ends with Pilate's downfall due to the political power plays emitting from Rome. Early in the story Pilate is shown saying: "I hope that one day I might do something in Judaea by which my name might be remembered." Pilate is remembered, not as the man who brought precious water to the parched desert sands as he hoped, but as the Roman leader who ordered the crucifixion of Christ. This is more than the story of a public Pilate. It is the story of an adoring father, a busy but loving husband and a faithful friend. It is the story of a man whose fatal flaw was his miscalculation of the power of Jesus. The story moves right along, building to a climax with the Crucifixion. The author has cleverly intertwined historical truth with imaginative narrative to bring a story well wc-'h reading. MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE AND I remember Spain. Edited by Murray A. Sperbcr. (Macmillan. $7.95). In 1936 a bloody civil war erupted in Spain and more than a million Spaniards were to die before the violence finally came to an end in 1939. From the beginning the long struggle between the Loyalists and the Falangists attracted the attention, and in some cases actual participation in the war, of writers around the world., In an effort to preserve some of the best of thcrcams of writing produced about the war, editor Murray A. Sperber combed the files and the result is this anthology. In it are pieces by such major writers as Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passes as well as items by now obscure journalisits. They all blend to reach the editor's aim of reproducing for the reader "the milieu of the late 1930s, and the' Spanish Civil War, and the special feelings that war provoked in both international participants and spectators." Most of the major battles are recalled in these pages, but it is primarily the little things of the war as they are recalled by m a n y ' o f the writers here that are most fascinating. Things such as Theodore Dreiser noting of his hotel that "there are no sheets on the beds. All the available linen or fine cloths has been taken for bandages for the wounded." Or Hemingway's: "You stand in line all day to buy food for supper. Sometimes the foods run out before you reach the door.

"The house That Lived A- THE EAGLES DIEi F r a n i Joseph, Elisabeth and their Austria, by George R. Marek. (Harper Row. $12.50) · The collapse ot the Austro- Hungarian Empire after World War I was a major factor In Western Europe's decline and the rise of the Soviet Union and the rest of the East in the power struggle. Far back in tha 19th century the great French diplomat Talleyrand prophetically stressed that a .strong Austria was indispensable as a buffer against the hordes beyond the Oder. George R. Marek has told the story of the empire's twilight years during the long reign of Emperor Franz Joseph. He describes the chaos of the revolutions of '1848, the defeat' by Prussia and yielding to that power of dominance in the German world, the suicide cf tha emperor's only son and heir. Archduke Rudolf, at Mayerling. the empress's assasination and the pistol shols at Sarajevo that launched World War I. Marek relies too much on modern psychology to form his character judgments, a shaky device when applied to those long dead. But he has dived undaunted into some very demanding research and described the period with color md affection. He attempts to recapture the whole epoch. Franz Joseph emerges as the supreme bureaucrat of his regime, duty bound but unimaginative. His beautiful empress, Elisabeth, fled early from the realities of her responsibilities: even her murder seems more melodrama than history. And tha murder by frustrated, unbalanced Rudolf of one of his mistresses, Mary Vetsera. and his subsequent suicide lose in the glare of truth the romance that lias encrusted them. But there is also the story of creativeness in Vienna -- Johan Strauss Jr. and his waltzes, Richard Strauss and his symphonies and operas, Gusluv Mahler, composer and conductor.
