The British Case
The British Case
By Lord Lloyd
Macmillan, 1940, 93 pp

An eloquent, frequently epigrammatic, but not always realistic tract explaining Britain's high ethical and political objectives in the war. The true dividing line in Europe, Lord Lloyd holds, is not between democratic and non-democratic states, but between those which respect the independence of other nations and those which do not. In places he oversimplifies history; and his remarks on Mussolini's Fascist state, for example, indicate considerable naïveté.
