Overview

This is a collection of original studies on the international health and welfare organizations between the First and the Second World Wars.

Multilateral organizations such as the League of Nations and a variety of types of non-governmental organizations are discussed. The role of scientific and professional factors, as well as the priorities of women's employment, eugenics and pronatalism are also considered.
