Can Europe Keep the Peace
Can Europe Keep the Peace
By Frank H. Simonds
Harpers, 1931, 373 pp

Stock-taking by a newspaperman of long experience. He discusses the weaknesses of the peace settlement, the outstanding territorial difficulties, the economic motives in the policies of the Powers, and the efforts made in the direction of peace and coöperation. His view of the future is dismal, perhaps too dismal. He is at great pains to avoid being misled by shibboleths and pious hopes. The book deserves wide attention.
