Part 1 focuses on Nationalism, Its Character, Fallacies, and Faults; Part II focuses on Modern Political and Social Changes and their Reaction on National Rivalry; Part III focuses on Progressive Forces, which seek to overcome the faults of Nationalism and Establish an Order of Things in Agreement with the Evolution of Society; Peace through Diplomacy: Nationalism Retained; Peace through Cooperation: Nationalism Abandoned. World War I has refined or reversed the thought of the opponents of way, and has made them more guarded in their statement, for it has brought the realization that war is not so improbable or impossible as was asserted. A number of pacifists have become more firmly convinced that the only thing that can overcome evil is, not force, but the spiritual weapon of goodwill. The Great War has justified the contention of the opponents of militarism that competitive armaments do not secure peace, but produce war. The Great War has shown that nationalism, as it now is understood, makes war probable.
