This new series will introduce, through men competent to speak for their countries, the statements of foreign policies from the Armistice to the present. If it is safe to take these two volumes as samples of the method, each speaker will review the facts, survey the problems, defend the position taken in controversial issues. Political transactions are presented, well documented against an historical background. In selecting the authors, the editor of the series, E. H. Carr of London is making a genuine effort towards international understanding. In preparation, England, Germany, U.S.S.R., Japan. If it is fair to judge from the two volumes at hand, it is inevitable that the writers will view the same facts through different eyes, and that -- to the observer -- both writers are, perhaps naturally, prejudiced, the results contradictory.
