Internationalism and the Search for Peace

Peter Wilson
Palgrave Macmillan (16 August 2002)

Colonial civil servant, Fabian socialist and 'eminence grise' of the Bloomsbury Circle, Leonard Woolf was one of the most prolific writers on international relations in the early mid-20th century. His report for the Fabian Society, International Government, was influential on the creation of the League of Nations. He was a co-founder of the popular pressure group, the League of Nations Society. This book examines the thought of this relatively unknown political thinker. It thoroughly reassesses his ideas, for decades condemned as 'utopian', in the context of the much more fluid international scene of the 21st century.
