Book Review Twenty Years Crisis

EDWIN M. BORCHARD, Yale Law School


The Twenty Years’ Crisis, 1919-1939: An introduction to the study of international relations By Edward Hallett Carr. London: Maemillan & Co., 1940. Pp. xv, 312. $3.00. THIS valuable work is primarily a study of the fundamentals of international relations, illustrated by the events of history and especially by the events of the two decades before 1939. It was written before the outbreak of the war in 1939, but loses nothing by that fact. The author has studied man in his group relations, and has discovered certain truths which deserve the closest consideration from students of law and international relations
