The Gentlemen Talk of Peace
The Gentlemen Talk of Peace
By William B. Ziff
Macmillan, 1944, 530 pp

Mr. Ziff not only has an axe to grind, but he wields it with a strong arm. Much of what he says about the realities of international intercourse has been said before, if not as pungently. He is hard on various peace-planners, such as Streit and Culbertson, but nevertheless comes up with a blueprint of his own. This provides, not only for the dismantling of Germany, but for dividing up the world into five "Power Aggregates" -- an enlarged Russia; a European union; an Oriental union; a Western union to include the Americas, the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand and sundry islands; and a mandated area in Central and Southern Africa. Readers will take this nostrum at their own risk!
