This is the first of three volumes dealing with a major accomplishment of American society--the provision of relief to other peoples in distress. As a person connected with this work for many years former President Hoover is well placed to recount this narrative, which, in form, is largely a documentary chronicle based in good part upon the files of the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace.
