New York: B. W. Huebsch, Inc., 1923, 12mo. Boards, paper spine label. 36 p. "The book is an indictment of secret diplomacy as the chief factor in bringing on the war. In an attempt to shift the responsibility for the war from Germany to the Allies, the author examines the diplomatic, military and naval plans of the Allies for twelve years, the charges of war propagandists, and the garbling of official dispatches just before the war broke out. The 'duty of civilization' is to rid ourselves of a system that makes such things possible" - Book Review Digest 1st ed. Bookplate; else fine in d. w. with a tear at top edge.
