The Evolution of War
A Marxian Study (1927, 1st)
First US edition. Hardback, with printed titling to spine and upper board. 19.5 × 13.5cm, 123pp.
A Marxist study of war with chapters on Savagery, Barbarism, and Civilization. From the preface "...predict that by means of Revolution the Proletariat will establish their Dictatorship, as the Russian workers have already done, and therewith suppress the bourgeoisie the world over. Then private property will be transformed into common property and socialized industry will produce for use and not profit. This latter metamorphosis, Marxian science declares, is the essential basis of peace. Only Communist society can abolish war".
This copy is in very good condition. There are few inoffensive pencil annotations to the margins, and one small spot of fading to the upper board.
