L
New York, N.Y. 10019.
Kennedy, a Catholic priest and psychologist, argues that the old au- thoritarian Catholic culture is dying and that today's priest must find the meaning of his ministry from within human experience. "A well-developed personal identity is indispensable to effective pastoral min- istry," Kennedy writes, yet many priests continue to think of them- selves "in the third person,"...

Samuelson, a Washington writer for the Financial Times of London, challenges the revived election-year notions that the federal bureau- cracy has grown enormously in the past decade; that federal workers are grossly overpaid; that the government could be more effective and less costly if it were reorganized. In fact, Samuelson notes, federal civilian employment has grown about...

Benigno E. Aguirre, in
Latin American Research Review (no. 1, 1976), 316 Hamilton Hall, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, N.C. 27514.
Between 1959 and 1972, the United States received almost half a million Cuban immigrants-almost all of them white. In this study, Aguirre, doctoral candidate in sociology at Ohio University, assays the political and social forces that have discouraged emigration of blacks, who comprise over a quarter of Cuba's population but in 1970 made up only 2.6 percent...

means of spontaneous abortion. To Haring, it seems "shocking" that rhythm, recently endorsed again the Church, should in application produce a vast number of zygotes (fertilized eggs not yet implanted in the wall of the womb) lacking the vitality for survival.
Interruption of the life process between fertilization and implanta- tion, he says, lacks the "gravity or malice" that attends abortion of an individualized embryo. But Haring concludes that the new medical evidence (already...

Andrew J. Pierre, in Orbis (Win-With Terrorism ter 1976), 3508 Market St., Philadelphia,
Pa. 19104.
International terrorism is clearly on the rise and cannot be regarded as a passing phenomenon. During the two decades prior to 1969 an annual average of 5 aircraft hijackings occurred; in the early 1970s, writes Pierre, an American arms control and European security spe- cialist at the Council on Foreign Relations, more than 60 took place each year. The past six years have seen more than 500 major...

Chinese Oil trice Wolfe, in Asian Survey (June 1976), University of California Press, Berkeley, Calif. 94720.
China's fast-growing petroleum industry-315 million barrels produced in 1972, increasing 20-25 percent annually-has attracted attention in the West especially since the 1973-74 energy crisis. Most specialists look at China's oil exports potential. But it is more valuable to observe Maoist principles of economic development, argues Jessica Leatrice Wolfe, a graduate student...
