The lack of a reliable reference book on the idea of peace has been felt for a long time; through the cooperation of outstanding men and women from Germany and abroad, this work offers a precise overview of the reasons, goals and means of world pacifism. So it will be a reliable handbook for anyone who wants to orient themselves to the pacifist movement after the world war. It will be indispensable for the pacifist.

The book serves to spread the idea of international peace and international reconciliation, which, after the disastrous world war, are the only way out of the political, cultural, and economic world renewal.

Put it in 15 Pfennig envelope as a “book slip” without any written additions.
