The Second International, 1889-1914
By G. D. H. Cole
St. Martin's Press, 1956, 2 pp.

This third volume, appearing in two parts, of Mr. Cole's important, scholarly "History of Socialist Thought" deals with the era of the Second International to its disruption with the outbreak of war in 1914. While the author pursues the Socialist movement through many countries, his primary emphasis is upon the evolution of the leading ideas and upon ideological conflicts.
