La Patrie Humaine
La Patrie Humaine
By Victor Margueritte
Flammarion, 1931, 287 pp

Victor Margueritte, the son of a general and himself once a soldier, stands in the forefront of a little French group which preaches the sermon of internationalism. Despite the penalty of intense unpopularity, he has persisted in his crusade against the patriotic theories and propaganda of the war period, has insisted on a reconsideration of the question of war guilt, and has called for revision of the treaties as a necessary preliminary for the introduction of a new world order. It is his conviction that France should seek for leadership, not in military preponderance, but in the realm of ideas and in the service of humanity at large.
