Strategy of Peace
Strategy of Peace
By Henry Merritt Wriston
World Peace Foundation, 1944, 159 pp.

This thought-provoking book by the President of Brown University is in three parts: the first deals with international relations in general, the second with the history of American foreign policy, and the third with the structure of the coming peace settlement. He is skeptical of "geopolitics" as a basis for American foreign policy because it does not allow sufficient flexibility for changes in the non-geographical factors of world politics. As for the peace settlement, he wants it to be embodied in brief instruments providing for gradual pacification rather than a bulky and detailed affair like the Versailles Treaty.
