Le Origine Economiche E Diplomatiche Della Guerra Mondiale
Le Origine Economiche E Diplomatiche Della Guerra Mondiale
By Alberto Lumbroso
Mondadori, 1926, 544 pp.

The first volume of an imposing history of the causes of the war, dealing largely with the economic factors. The author sees the ultimate reason for the catastrophe in the imperialism of the Anglo-Saxon race, and holds England chiefly responsible. The thesis, which will naturally meet with much opposition, is developed in a scholarly way, and the book is to be taken as the classic formulation of a rather novel viewpoint.
