FROM THE AUTHORS PREFACE: WE believe we are justified in starting out in this volume upon the fundamental and scientific basis that, if we are to cure a malady, we must understand its cause, -- we must properly diagnose the case; that in order to find a remedy for war and build securely on the foundation for a lasting peace, we must understand the underlying cause of conflict. Accordingly, the first part of this work is the outgrowth of the author's interest in, and study of, the causes of war, -- with particular reference to the wars of the past half-century. This study naturally and fittingly led to a more intensive study of the European background of the World War, its remote and fundamental as well as its immediate causes. There was also recognized the need, well nigh universal up to the very present, of a brief suggestive course in book form, for the study of the Great War, — its background, progress and issues, and the peace outlook, which would be suitable for the busy student and the busy citizen, who are simply bewildered in the great mass of unorganized material that confronts them, -- and that this should be adapted to the schoolroom as well as the home. Hence the second and third parts of this work.
