Abstract

IN “The Twenty Years' Crisis”, Prof. E. H. Carr set out to make a contribution to the science of international relations, but somehow he seemed to lose his way in the maze of power politics. Without any such avowed purpose, he has now given us in “Conditions of Peace”* a constructive analysis in the true scientific tradition, which is a real contribution to the establishment of such a science. It is indeed more than a clear, dispassionate analysis of past ills and present problems, a foreshadowing of future needs ; its calm application of the scientific spirit to world affairs has something of great nobility and vision.
