KIRKUS REVIEW

A study of the various steps by which the world crisis in international relations has been reached via League of Nations, successive disarmament conferences, changing approach to problems of peace and international amity, pacts, treaties, movements. A book which anyone seriously and constructively interested in the possibility of working out a practical method of solving threats of war should have as a reference book on what has been tried, what has failed, and where the diplomats of the world have been found wanting. A practical plan of reorganization of the League to permit inclusion of nations not willing to accept the whole is presented. Not light reading -- not a tabloid dose for those who want a short cut to the facts, past and present, but a book for serious students of diplomatic and international relationships.
