Peace or War?

By Lieutenant-Commander J. M. Kenworthy
Boni and Liveright, 1927
338 pp. $2.50
Purchase

Though there are many histories of the world's wars, little systematic study has been devoted to the history of efforts to secure and maintain peace. This book tells for the first time the full story of American peace movements; and it is to be hoped that we shall ultimately have similar surveys for other countries. The book is scholarly in the best sense of the word, but there is nothing forbidding about it. On the contrary, it reads like an impressive epic of idealistic effort which, even though it has borne no great fruit, is nevertheless part and parcel of the American ideology.
