This volume, written by the London correspondent of La Tribuna, is a good general study of the disarmament question as it touches sea power. The author goes over the whole ground from the Washington Conference to the present, not neglecting the political negotiations that went on between the interested Powers outside the regular conferences. Though the exposition of the British view is a trifle weak, the handling of the Anglo-American problem is in general well-informed and fair. The treatment of the Franco-Italian problem is distinctly from the viewpoint of the Italian patriot.
