A series of lectures delivered at the Geneva School of International Studies by the former director of the disarmament section of the League. The book is stimulating throughout and about as successful as any study of national characteristics can well be. The author sees the Englishman as the man of action, the Frenchman as the man of thought and the Spaniard as the man of passion, and adduces many brilliant and suggestive examples from the history of each country to illustrate his account. His understanding is unquestionably profound, but the work necessarily suffers from overgeneralization.
