Book Description

31 Dec 1978 George Macaulay Trevelyan lectures
Isn't war rooted in the vested interests of the ruling classes? (But have not democracies proved as bellicose as other states?) Should not political disputes be settled by civilized negotiations? (But what if the adversary is not, by your standards, 'civilized'?) Ought states to steer clear of other states' internal conflict? (Or should they help liberate oppressed peoples?) Which is better, appeasement or a war to end war? Such questions reflect the confusion that still besets liberal-minded men in the face of war despite centuries of trying to discover its causes and secure its abolition. Michael Howard traces the pattern in attitudes from Erasmus to the Americans after Vietnam, and concludes that peacemaking 'is a task which has to be tackled afresh every day of our lives'.
