A Smith professor of economics discusses the world crisis with its roots in Versailles' map making. He discusses the creation of new boundaries in detail, clarifying much that is hazy in the mind of the man-in-the-street. He traces the political and economic changes in Europe, the rise of dictatorships, the annihilation of Socialism on several fronts, the Rome-Berlin axis, the Abyssinian War, the war in Spain, Czechoslovakia -- and a final chapter on Wilson's Ghost. He contributes nothing startlingly new, but he does clarify many points. Timely survey of the A B C's of the crisis.
