During the years 1681-1756 Pennyslvania, administered under the frame of government drawn up by William Penn, grew and prospered at a greater rate than any other colony in America – and all this without an army of any sort. The development of the experiment in pacifism based on Quaker principals is clearly traced, and what the disruptive forces were.



This book was of particular interest to contemporary readers for the light it throws on problems of war and peace and international relations, an historical study of ideal conceptions in government and the possibility of pacifism as a strictly practical policy.



Hardback, published by C.W. Daniel, London, 1937. First edition.
