Raw Materials or War Materials?
Raw Materials or War Materials?
By Alfred Plummer
Gollancz, 1937, 144 pp

This little book seeks to elucidate the real facts in the "Have versus Have-Not" controversy. In Part I the author, Vice-Principal of Ruskin College at Oxford, examines the present distribution of certain key raw materials among the Powers, and in Part II he sets out the economic and political implications of his statistics. On the whole he is content to let the democratic Powers continue to possess most of the world's resources, at least until the others will coöperate in the League to further collective security, disarmament and similar pacific policies.
