Excerpt

The presumption of this book I frankly acknowledge; to present impartially subjects of so wide a variety and so complex and controversial a character is nothing, if not ambitious.

For the faults and errors which, I fear, may have crept into these comprehensive pages I crave lenience; they are the result of finite capacity, and not of conscious straying from the truth.

For the aims of the book, the dissemination of ideas and ideals which shall make for a reduction of war, I offer no apology; indeed if, having this cause at heart as I do, I were remiss in it, I should hold myself deserving of great blame.

For the help I have had from whatever source I gladly give thanks and credit: To David Starr Jordan for his inspiration and his permission to use such portions as seemed useful of a Syllabus formerly published by us jointly; to Norman Angell for invaluable suggestions and contributions as herein appear; to Dr. John Mez for ideas and sound advice; to Dr. Denys P. Myers for sundry useful and exact information; and to all those who, whether knowingly or unknowingly, have contributed ideas and labor to this agreeable enterprise now happily finished.

EDWARD KREHBIEL.

WASHINGTON, D. C. April 3, 1916.
