From the author's Note: In the summer of 1941, in my own fashion, I set down my ideas on "Peace Aims." I imagined that Mr. Churchill saw the possibilities which I felt I myself could see in Rudolf Steiner's Threefold Commonwealth Idea and that he set. himself to realise them. I imagined the English-speaking world as a consequence forming itself into a Threefold Republic and inviting all other peoples to become members 'Of it. I imagined that the war then resolved itself (as it assuredly would) into "a vast revolutionary crusade for a new world order," 

I sent this unpretentious treatise through the post to about one thousand persons 'Of influence in various parts of the world -writers of distinction, eminent scientists, prominent politicians, leading ministers of religion, university people, well­known social workers, etc. With it I sent in each case a personal letter asking for comment. 

I received a large number of repiies,-all of them inter­esting. To every person' who+thus generously responded to my request, I express my personal gratitude. I very much wish the reader could see all of these letters and get from them the en­lightenment that in their entirety they offer. All that is possible here is for me to present him with extracts from a few of them. I have found selection exceedingly difficult...

The condition of the pamphlet is very poor, but is fine as a reading copy or reference for study. The cover has several scuffs and blemishes, and creases, wear and discoloration along the edges and corners, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are intact and bound.
