520    "In this innovative account of the origins of the idea of 
       the League of Nations, Sakiko Kaiga casts new light on the
       pro-League of Nations movement in Britain in the era of 
       the First World War, revealing its unexpected consequences
       for the development of the first international 
       organisation for peace. Combining international, social, 
       intellectual history and international relations, she 
       challenges two misunderstandings about the role of the 
       movement: that their ideas about a league were utopian and
       that its peaceful ideal appealed to the war-weary public. 
       Kaiga demonstrates how the original post-war plan 
       consisted of both realistic and idealistic views of 
       international relations, and shows how it evolved and 
       changed in tandem with the war. She provides a 
       comprehensive analysis of the unknown origins of the 
       League of Nations and highlights the transformation of 
       international society and of ideas about war prevention in
       the twentieth century to the present"--|cProvided by
