During the Second World War (1939-45) Krishnamurti did not speak publicly in the United States but lived quietly in Ojai, California. People sought him out and came to dialogue with him on many issues of the times or on their own personal dilemmas. Their problems were universal human problems, and each made true his statement that 'You are the World'. As Krishnamurti unwound the tight threads of their thinking and feeling, the core or source of a concern was revealed, unadorned and without blame or guilt.
These interviews are being published nearly seventy years after Krishnamurti wrote them.
