Through the fortunes of war the manuscript is in one of the belligerent capitals and the inscrutable intelligence of those who govern in the name of Liberty does not permit me to obtain these writings during the war.It is not difficult to understand this as it will be gathered from these pages I am not especially enthusiastic about war and am optimist enough to dare to hope that humanity might occupy its time more profitably than in a destruction of itself and in the shameless murder and folly which now disgrace mankind. As a new basis of social conflict is surely being laid throughout the world one must view with increasing alarm the long train of horror which has passed and that longer train which is to come as the most senseless, the most shameful and the most monstrous which history can ever record.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
