A symposium against war, presented by ten of America's leading women, writing for the National Committee on the Cause and Cure of War. Such names as Dr. Mary Wooley, Mrs. William Brown Meloney, Emily Nowell Blair, Judge Florence Allen, Jane Addams, Dorothy Canfield Fisher, Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, and others, indicate the high quality of thoughtful research back of the work. Figures substantiate assertions as to the practical, theoretical and humanitarian reasons back of the plea against war. The economic aspects, the problem of new debts, the actual effect of war. The economic aspects, the problem of new debts, the actual effect of war on the new generation, the exploded theory that war stimulates the best in the fighters, the advance of science of destruction, the sum and substance of the reasons why another war must -- at all costs -- be avoided. A book to sell to club groups, to study groups, to active and intelligent women everywhere.
