Abstract

Reviews the book, A study of war by Quincy Wright (1943). Everyone who is interested in the systematic study of war knows of the extensive investigations directed by Quincy Wright at the University of Chicago, and those who have known that he was preparing a comprehensive report and integration of this work have waited with keen interest for its appearance. The results, I think, justify the interest. Dr. Wright has produced two volumes packed full of sound knowledge and shrewd interpretation. There is no facet of this extremely complex problem which he has not touched, generally to good advantage. The extraordinary comprehensiveness of the book is perhaps a major fault. It is forbidding in size, exhaustive and exhausting in detail. No reader who is not endowed with persistence and patience can hope to finish it.
