The Century of Total War
The Century of Total War
By Raymond Aron
Doubleday, 1954, 379 pp.

Though writing in the first instance as a Frenchman to Frenchmen, M. Aron's very thoughtful and incisive analysis is of universal interest. Seeing the world in the midst of a chain reaction of wars, he seeks some way of mastering violence and yet preserving liberty. In the course of his argument he dissects neutralism and the Marxist climate of opinion.
