The Economic Causes of War

By Lionel Robbins
Cape, 1939
124 pp. $5.00

A masterpiece of sound analysis and clear exposition, by a professor of economics at the University of London. After criticizing (and discarding) the Marxian theory of imperialism, Professor Robbins tells what he regards as the true economic causes of war. He finds the anarchic political organization of the world to be the "root disease of our civilization," and concludes that national sovereignty in economic matters must be curbed and replaced by some sort of a federation.
