Hugh Dalton was a British Labour Party economist and politician, who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1945 to 1947 under Clement Atlee. After surviving the First World War, he was drawn in to active politics with the belief that, rightly handled, it could put an end to war. This title, originally published in 1928, is based on his journeys of political observation in Europe, where he examined the new conditions created by the war and subsequent events. He outlines some central problems and some provisional solutions.
