H.G Wells acknowledges that there are many other people that have ideas on what the "League of Nations" should be in makeup and purpose. This is his take on the subject.
He goes through recent history (1914) and speculates on near future (1918) of nation states. Interspersed with this are his ideas on politics and what would make a perfect world. He also spends quite some time defining Democracy. He also covers numerous other items as what make for an efficient war.
H.G. does have a unique view of things that make this book a must even for his sci-fi readers.
