War and Reconstruction*

  • An Erratum to this article was published on 23 March 1940


EVERYONE realizes, though with very different degrees of awareness and to the accompaniment of feelings that range from ardent hope to sullen resistance, that this War is bound to be followed by radical changes in the structure of separate societies and the organization of the world. In this connexion, biological analogy is helpful not only in creating a general background against which to envisage the coming change, but sometimes in suggesting detailed points in the new order.
