During the First World War, Bertrand Russell was political commentator for The Tribunal, the official weekly publication of the No-Conscription Fellowship, of which Russell was Action Chairman.
This volume contains many short papers from that period, which reflect Russell's immediate reponses to developments in the conflict. These documents bear witness to Russell's growing commitment to pacifism, and reveal the development of the patterns of political argument, rhetoric and activism which were to characterise his work throughout his life.

"The editors have done a marvellous job in arranging this wealth of material, bringing to their task a detailed knowledge of the historical context and a judicious assessment of Russell's political judgement... essential reading for any serious student of Russell's work, an invaluable source for historians of the first world war, of popular peace movements and of the history of British socialism...."
