MOORE Appendices A. Questions for Discussion 173 B. Voluntary Organizations Promoting World Peace 178 C. Educational Materials on Var and Ways to Peace iSj References 195 Index 20 Preface JL HE AIM OF THIS SMALL VOLUME IS TO EXPLAIN BRIEFLY the nature of the crisis brought about by the discovery of atomic energy, and to describe the momentous alternatives mankind now faces a united, peaceful world achieved by the development of a strong international organization, or a third world war and the probable decay of western civiliza tion.

The adequate development of this theme would be an audacious task for a single writer. To describe with accuracy and the requisite dramatic effect the epoch-making events at Los Alamos and Hiroshima to understand and explain the baffling problem of Russia to present satisfactorily the plight of Europe and Asia to write authoritatively on the nature of war in the atomic age and on the causes of war in general to set forth the larger implications of atomic energy in a manner commensurate with the far-reaching importance of the subject all this requires background, facilities, and skills available only to specialists.

It was be lieved, therefore, that a book containing the work of a group of such writers would have greater value than one prepared by a single author. The editor has undertaken to write par-IX x Preface ticubr chapters only because certain requisite material was not available in organized form. The result, then, is this soimwlnt unusual kind of anthology. It consists V of chapters, or parts of chapters, taken from the works of outstanding authors which contribute to the aim of the book, and fa of chapters the editor has prepared in order to fill gaps in the general plan of the volume and to provide a reasonable degree of completeness, unity, and continuity.

In the first part of the book, the chaos of the present postwar world is described, the menace of Russian com munism, the apparent necessity of a program of strong national defense for the United States, and the tremendous costs, waste of wealth, and terrible risksinherent in such a program.

Special attention is given to the nature of war in the atomic era. In Part II, emphasis is placed on the importance of our attaining an understanding of these and other problems brought about or accentuated by the dis covery of atomic energy. Then, in Part III, the work of the United Nations and the proposals now before the world for other forms of inter national organization are described.

Efforts of various in dividuals and local groups in behalf of union and peace are here considered...
