9781331383543: Armaments and Arbitration, or the Place of Force in the International Relations of States (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Armaments and Arbitration, or the Place of Force in the International Relations of States

The ten articles contained in this work were contributed, with one exception, to the North American Review, during the years 1911 and 1912. The exception is the seventh - The Panama Canal and Sea Power in the Pacific - which appeared in the Century Magazine for June, 1911.

The first six were planned as a series, intended to present the arguments, too frequently ignored, that neither Arbitration in a general sense, nor Arbitration in the more specific form of judicial decision based upon a code of law, can always take the place, either practically or beneficially, of the processes and results obtained by the free play of natural forces. Of these forces national efficiency is a chief element; and armament, being the representative of the national strength, is the exponent. This leading thought finds expression in the second title (subtitle) of the book - The Place of Force in the International Relations of States.

The author takes occasion to make his acknowledgments and thanks to the proprietors and editors of the North American Review, and of the Century Magazine, for the permission to republish which they have kindly given.
