192 pp, 7 3/8" H. "War Economy Standard." "For more than 50,000 generations man's history has been a story of masters and servitude; humiliation and unhappiness have been the lot of the vast majority of mankind since the dawn of organized society. War has succeeded war throughout the ages, always changing its nature, till now it has reached its ultimate stage, with the world a unit, huge populations its armies, and the weapons of war so decisively destructive that they will destroy mankind if they are not brought under control. For the first time, Wells argues, world reorganisation has become possible. In 'Phoenix', probably the most important book he has ever written, he outlines the current creative ideas of world reconstruction. He shows that three fundamental conditions are necessary: - federal world control of transport and disarmament; federal world control of the production and distribution of staple commodities; a world declaration of human rights. Wells claims that the Sankey-Wells declaration has already stated these rights. Lastly, he indicates the necessity of a final International which shall mobilize all men and women of courage, intelligence and good will, regardless of race, creed, class or colour, for a supreme attempt to defeat war and establish the lasting conditions of peace, freedom, progress and prosperity." One dog-ear crease, scattered tiny foxing marks throughout pages, light browning to edges of text block, two small slight corner creases, book has slight curvature.

Additional pictures available on request.
