Email this review


A sequel to the author's Dynamite and Peace, this book is a collection of short biographical studies of those men and women who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Jean Dunant, Passy, Bertha Kinsky, Theodore Roosevelt, Wilson, Nansen, Jane Addams, Nicholas Murray Butler, Norman Angell, Carl von Ossietzky, Ralph Bunche, Schweitzer, Lester Bowles Pearson, and three committees--The International Committee of the Red Cross, he British Friends Service Council, and the American Friends Service Committee--are selected here in that they are winners who most conspicuously devoted their talents toward the pursual of peace. Necessarily condensed and ocasionally dry, but an interesting, useful and factual tribute to those individuals who so eloquently served the cause to which the Nobel fortune is dedicated.
