Scope and content

(This is an essay in the form of a letter, originally directed to the editor of the New Statesman and Nation. It contains an apparent reference to the First General Conference for the Limitation and Reduction of Armaments, assembled at Geneva in February 1932, and the reference to ‘proposals for reduced armies, navies and the like’ suggests, more specifically, that it was written after Roosevelt’s proposal for the elimination of weapons of offensive warfare on 16 May 1933.)
