Against Illusions: Imperialism and War and the Grand Illusion of Peace

Norman Angell's Great Illusion of 1909 that Oligarchs and capitalism would bring peace - Angell argued that war between industrial countries was futile because conquest did not pay - it has echoes today.

Capitalism and its final Imperialist form means War as Lenin clearly pointed out in 1916 in his study Imperialism as reality hit home in 1914 -1918 and the Great Illusion was destroyed.
