Excerpt from The Inside Story of the Peace Conference
IT is almost superﬂuous to say that this book does not claim to be a history, however summary, of the Peace Conference, seeing that such a work was made sheer impossible by the chief Delegates themselves when they decided to dispense with records of their conversations and debates. It is only a sketch a sketch of the problems which the war created or rendered more acute; of the conditions under which they cropped up of the simplicist ways in which they were conceived by the distinguished politicians who volunteered to solve them of the Delegates' natural limitations and electioneering commit ments and of the secret inﬂuences by which they were swayed of the peoples' needs and expectations; of the unwonted procedure adopted by the Conference and of the fateful consequences to the world of its decisions.
In dealing with all those matters I aimed at impartiality, which is an unattainable ideal, but I trust that sincerity and detachment have brought me reasonably close to it. Having no pet theories of my own to champion, my principal standard of judgment is derived from the law of causality.
