After Two Wars by The Rt. Hon.
KENNETH YOUNGER
Director General of the Royal Institute of International Affairs
In 1910 a best-seller was published which affected the thinking of a generation. Its author, Norman Angell , former M.P. and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, had his ninetieth birthday last week. During the fifty years and more since the publishing of The Great Illusion two world wart have gone so far towards justifying some of Sir Norman Angell 's arguments that it is hard now to remember that four years before the First War, when this book was written, it could seem revolutionary to point out that war was no longer a profitable instrument of policy.
Kenneth Younger , who was born about the time that The Great Illusion was being written, has-as a former M.P. and a minister in the Labour Government — been closely associated ever since World War 2 with the problems of which Angell wrote.
He talks about half a century of development in thought on Power and Defence and considers how far Sir Norman Angell 's arguments are still applicable in the nuclear age.
