This is a review of the origins and course of World War I and of the subsequent settlement, including the establishment of the League of Nations. The author, whose sympathies lie with the Left, has justified his going over this well-trod ground by stressing the manner in which social issues dominated the later phases of the war and the politics of the peace. He warns against a repetition of the mistakes made during those years.
