Originally written in 1937 - 39, this book went to press just as the bombs started falling in Europe. The second edition was published in 1946, but with only minimal changes to reflect the fact that there had been another world war beyond the 1914-1918 war.
". . . this book is a monument to the human power of sane and detached analysis. In its examination of the collapse of the international system, it is utterly devoid of national bias, or that bitter denunciation of government and men which marks so much recent literature dealing with the crisis . . . In the development of his thesis, Professor Carr has produced one of the most significant contributions to the systematic study of the theory of international politics that this reviewer has seen in years." - W. P. Maddox (American Political Science Review)."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
