Much of this volume is devoted to a reprint of the numerous controversial articles published by the author during the past years, but the earlier part is taken up with a survey of the question of the origins of the war in the light of the most recent revelations and particularly with reference to the writer's conversations with some of the surviving statesmen of 1914. Of interest in this section are the statements of Berchtold, Hoyos and Szápary regarding the effect of the German attitude and the assurances given the Russian Government by the Austrian.
