The article focuses on several books on international relations. One of the books is "The Origins of the Second World War," by A.J.P. Taylor. This book has raised a storm of controversy which is likely to continue, since it touches some very sensitive spots. Briefly, it attacks the Nuremberg trial thesis of the origins of the war, and proposes that there was much of blunder and accident on all sides, including the German. "From Yalta to Disarmament," by Joseph P. Morray, is a selection of speeches and documents, with commentary, to illustrate the nature of the international debate on the major issues that have divided the U.S. and the Soviet Union. "The Control of the Arms Race," by Hedley Bull, is a study of the arms race and of the measures by which it might be controlled, whether by reduction or restraints. It is less concerned with recommendations than with presenting the complexity of the issue. "When Nations Disagree," by Arthur Larson, is a lively discussion for the general reader of the premises of world law and of the prospects for extending its scope and effectiveness with the goal of maintaining peace.
