The Geography of the Peace
The Geography of the Peace
By Nicholas John Spykman
Harcourt, 1944, 66 pp.

This slender volume, in large format, appears posthumously, having been edited by Professor Spykman's assistant, Helen R. Nicholl. Its thesis is that already stated in the author's "America's Strategy in World Politics." What is new here is the large number of schematic maps and the direct application of the geopolitical method to the postwar settlement. The net result is to demonstrate once again that geopolitics, in so far as it is valid, is merely common sense disguised in a new technical jargon.
