Synopsis

Although British leaders made the principal contribution to the drafting of the League of Nations Covenant, Egerton shows that the British political elite opposed the type of league that emerged from the peace conference. These skeptics objected to the articles attempting to create a system of collective security" and preferred to build upon the traditions of the British Empire to institute a system that would integrate "functional" cooperation."
