In This Review

The author, one of the French delegates to Geneva, gives a succinct account of the progress made to 1925, and then outlines the main problems involved and the possible solutions. He advocates the substitution of a militia for the standing army and urges the necessity for the reduction of all armaments, which he considers feasible by international agreement. The question of controlling the manufacture of the instruments of warfare, and trade in them, is developed at considerable length. The whole book is remarkable for its competence and sincerity.
