Description

A novel that thematizes many of the concerns of the non-fiction publications about the League of Nations and the question of disarmament, this book was written by Alice Ritchie who was a traveller for the Press and, Leonard Woolf claims in his autobiography, the first female book traveller in England. She had previously worked for the League of Nations Secretariat, and her novel is based on those experiences.
