ABSTRACT
The article analyses the book "The Price of Peace," by Charles Bolté. The book is related to foolproof proposals by the government for universal and enforceable disarmament. In the first year of Bolté plan, United Nations inspectors establish themselves in the factories, government offices and military establishments of every nation. By the fifth year all nations are limited to small police forces lightly armed. A Disarmament Agency is functioning under the Security Council and is supported by a UN armed force. The body is subject to world law, interpreted by UN courts with power to issue injunctions against violations of the agreement. The author conceded that the ideas may be far fetched at present.
