Political Myths and Economic Realities

By Francis Delaisi
Viking, 1927
463 pp. $4.00

The translation of a work by a French economist, which should be widely read by those interested in foreign affairs. The author sets out to demolish the "myth" of nationalism by putting it in its proper setting and showing that it has outlived its usefulness. The modern world is based primarily on economic foundations, and the result of the spread of industrialism has been to make all parts of the world interdependent. Under the circumstances the "polytheism of sovereignties" has become a dangerous anomaly and no satisfactory solution of such problems as war can be expected until a readjustment of the world order has taken place. The argument in itself is not new, but it is cogently and logically presented.
