First published in 1946, A Dictionary of International Affairs is virtually an encyclopaedia. This highly useful reference work is indispensable to all who desire to be well-informed about the world in which they live. The scope of this book is unusually wide. It deals with such varied subjects of the Chaco Dispute, Ogpu, Syndicalism, Freedom of the Seas, Balfour Declaration, etc. It also contains statistics about minerals, agricultural produce, and industrial products. In addition, it provides essential information about erstwhile colonies, islands, and nations. It brings together – in a precise style and compact form – a vast amount of basic and interesting information on almost every conceivable aspect of international affairs. Chief emphasis is given to developments since World War I – particularly to those agreements, concepts, agencies, problems, areas and resources which are of continuing importance.
