Boycotts and Peace 33 Columbia Law Review 552, 1933


Boycotts and Peace. A Report by the Committee on Economic Sanctions Nicholas Murray Butler, Chairman. Edited by Evans Clark, Director, Twentieth Evans Century Fund, Inc. New HARPER xx. This volume seems to the reviewer metaphysics, than one dealing with twentieth-century participated in the volume, it seems difficult supposed that peace, or anything like peace, is to be achieved by the methods advocated in this book. The thesis is this: war; that the pledge less, it is possible to pick the "aggressor" as the United States has excluded the use of armed sanctions, it should now associate itself with other against the "aggressor," thus avoiding force and yet paralyzing the aggressor fear of consequences or actual defeat, and thereby assure peace.
