Book Description

First published in 1923, this book examines the causes and evils of War. Being published soon after the First World War, this becomes the basis for much of the volume's experience. The author G. Lowes Dickinson argues that war and civilisation are incompatible and that the pursuit of war will end in the destruction of mankind.
