0919203027 71 pages. A book concerned with the extra-military attempts - what the author calls the "behind-the-lines development" - commencing almost at the outset of the First World War, to bring about an end to the hostilities; or, at least, by frustrating further alliances (as between the Turks and the Germans), by disrupting the existing alliance between Germany and Austria, and by fomenting further, and capitalizing on existing, disorders in Russia to foreshorten appreciably the period of conflict...... That the war obscured the struggle between social classes that would in the future override all the issues that gave rise to the conflict was for the author a supreme irony." Published posthumously.
