"Thoughtful men and women are demanding that use be made of every human resource in the passionate endeavor to prevent the recurrence of war. Though it is generally recognized that human nature--in particular the human nature which develops under modern industrial societies--needs to be as fully understood as possible if the control of war is to prove feasible, there have been, up to the present, only the most fragmentary efforts towards mobilizing our psychological information in reference to this problem. No single approach will ever prove adequate. Neither the historian, the economist, the sociologist, the political scientist, the psychiatrist, nor the psychologist has all the answers. The need is so great that it is felt there is a rightful place for a book stressing the many facets of the problem of human nature as it relates to war. The contributions represent many viewpoints, but all are founded upon genuine expertness and competence with reference to the specific problem treated"--Preface.
