Overview

This volume focuses on the final years of the League of Nations - from 1929 to 1946 - a time of political violence, growing nationalism, and war. Author George Gill recounts these turbulent years, providing readers with a fascinating chronicle of this period. Gill's incisively written essay examines the decline of the League. The rise of brutal dictators, the erosion of international unity, and the failure of world leaders are all part of his mosaic. Special insets throughout the text highlight pivotal incidents, key documents offer the words that made history, and numerous photographs recapture the spirit of a time past. His book also offers a chronology of major world events so that League history and the wider global context are intermeshed. Gill demonstrates how the League died an agonizing death, yet makes clear how the larger cause of world cooperation survived into a new, and more dangerous, era.
