‘… [T]his book does not claim to be a history… of the Peace Conference … It is only a sketch … of the problems which the war created … of the simplistic ways in which they were conceived by the distinguished politicians who volunteered to solve them; of the delegates’ natural limitations and electioneering commitments 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 of its decisions to the world’. By the Irish journalist Emile Joseph Dillon, Russian correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, 1887-1914.
