This article discusses the ideas of former British Prime Minister Anthony Eden about international relations. The three volumes of the book "The Memoirs of Anthony Eden, Earl of Avon" are of impressive interest. For they are not only an informative account of Eden's own exertions but also a portrayal of the tippling course of diplomacy into war. Though animated by the natural wish to explain and justify his own actions, the narrative which is carefully candid, transcends such a personal purpose. The incisive interpretations and conclusions are a stimulus to thought about the crucial problems of diplomacy today, since these are essentially the same as those which confronted Eden during his long career.
