Black is writing to Norman Cousins from Washington, D.C. regarding a review of the book, The Civilian and the Military, written by Arthur Ekirch, Jr. On October 31, Black writes, "It might be that my own solicitude about the subject is due to a rather strong impression that it is wise to keep in mind the early tradition of this country in regard to standing armies and the subordination of the military to the civilian authorities." Together with a retained carbon from Cousins, dated October 24, 1956. Ex. Norman Cousins Estate.
