The Prevention of War

Excerpt

The lectures in this volume were delivered at the Institute of Politics at Williamstown by two British authors, under the general title, A British View of International Problems. They are now published under what is a more appropriate title, The Prevention of War, because the first three deal specifically with the problem of ending international war, and because the other three deal with special aspects of the same problem. The lecture on The Union of South Africa describes the causes which gave rise to the South African war (1899-1902) and how they were finally removed. The lecture on Responsible Government in India sets forth the attempt which is being made in that vast country to effect the transition from benevolent despotism to self-government without the anarchy or civil war which has almost always accompanied that transition in the past. The third lecture discusses the relations between Europe and Asia, and the place of moral ideas in the progress of mankind to lasting liberty and peace.
