Arms Limitation and Disarmament: Restraints on War, 1899-1939


This collection examines various aspects of the efforts made to limit warfare through arms limitation and disarmament agreements in the period from the first Hague conference to the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Written by experts on disarmament issues, these chapters put into historical perspective how and why the efforts to restrain war were undertaken at the Hague conferences, the Washington conference, and among antiwar groups. Each chapter tends to offer differing points of view on accomplishments and failures, because, as is so often the case in historical study, the record is mixed.
