A History of the League of Nations
A History of the League of Nations
By John I. Knudson
Smith, 1938, 445 pp.

A comprehensive and authoritative history by a British member of the League Secretariat from 1919 to 1940. The author sees the League as "the first effective move towards the organization of a world-wide political and social order, in which the common interests of humanity could be seen and served across the barriers of national tradition, racial difference, or geographical separation." His treatment corresponds to this high theme.
