Measured up against the stimulating and challenging books that are coming off the presses on this subject, this seems dry, didactic and second hand. It is a long drawn out affair, filled with quotations from other writers, and almost wholly lacking in any opinions of his own. He quotes from George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, Hitler, Herbert Hoover, Ida Wylie, Franklin Roosevelt, J. Edgar Hoover and others, with no regard to chronology. He traces the war movement -- the peace movement --through the ages, pointing out our mistakes and encouraging us not to repeat past errors. He seems to feel that the present war stems back to the time of Heine, he analyzes the German creed from Kent, Hegel and Nietzsche on. Limited market.
