The Ruhr Conflict: A Report

Excerpt

Following the publication in May last of Professor Lichtenberger's important volume on Relations between France and Germany, the Division of Intercourse and Education of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace now lays before the public a report by Professor Lichtenberger on The Rihr Conflict. This second publication is written with the same impartiality, the same sense of objective detachment and the same understanding as the earlier volume. When men's passions are roused it it not easy to discuss the issues that have stirred them save in a partisan spirit. Professor Lichtenberger has succeeded in accomplishing what is almost an impossibility. Although himself a loyal and devoted son of France he here discusses the burning questions of the moment in a spirit of scientific impartiality and human kindliness. That his discussion will assist public opinion, particularly in English speaking countries, to understand the facts and the merits of the controversy over the occupation of the Ruhr cannot be doubted.

NICHOLAS MURRAY BUTLER.
