ABSTRACT
Focuses on the need for uniting the world after the war. Comments made by political scientist David Mitrany on forming the peace system; Proposal made by Mitrany that there should be no single international government at all; Failure of the League of Nations to preserve the peace is attributed by many to the fact that it was too loose an association, with too little energy and too few powers; Suggestions to unite those nations which have the same ideological principles, such as democracies; Problem of maintaining peace is to learn how to get along without war in a world which is certain for a long time to exhibit a good deal of variety in government and ways of thinking; Advocacy of a functional approach to international organization, made by Mitrany; Presence of various constructive agencies developed under the League for purposes as the control of the drug traffic or the protection of labor standards; Provision of policing and legal agencies of the traditional kind by special treaties or executive agreements; Role of international agencies in providing the substance of international organization in a way that paper constitutions and idealistically constructed legislative assemblies could not.
