Abstract:

"The holocaust of World War I ended with a great dream - the founding of the League of Nations. Based on an idealistic plan, the Covenant of the League expressed man's deep-seated desire to govern by justice and reason. The League would enshrine the interests of the world community above those of any individual nation or group of nations. It would institute humane labor conditions throughout the world, prevent disease, and fight the evils of slavery, drug traffic, and prostitution."--Book Jacket.
