Summary "The scheme, then, is to proceed, chapter by chapter, in terms of a psychological orientation. I shall attempt an introductory sketch, through six chapters, from my own viewpoint. Then in Part II I shall attempt to look systematically at the dangers, the troublespots of the world. As I come to each snag, each difficulty, I will pose a critical question horn which I hope an expert can make his own departure, both answering my question and carrying, forward the thought. In this way we may see more clearly the context within which the next question must be posed. In Part III the same method of question and answer will be used, looking to the constructive suggestions which experts have to offer. It will, then, be my task again at the conclusion of the book to integrate what these many experts have offered"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
"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.
