Summary/Abstract: TEXT IS PRINTED IN GERMAN FRAKTURA, TO BE READ ONLY BY READERS BEING FAMILIAR WITH THIS FONT!! // Since 1931 until his death (1935) the author has been the first and only German judge at the Permanent Court of International Justice in The Hague. // From his introduction: „The following study aims to put one of the most important questions of day-to-day politics in the light of science in a generally understandable form for a larger audience. The glaring light that falls on the aberrations of our reactionary nationalists will at first startle some patriotic readers. However, this reader should have long since become puzzled when he sees the French nationalists rightly portrayed in his "national” daily newspaper as a backward group and when he reads about the atrocities of the Union of Genuine Russian People. Isn't it just a gradual difference in injustice, based on the diversity of culture, between killing or expropriating political opponents? The following pages try to explain the effects of the nationalistic disease on us. May then the wonderful word from the Bible come true: "The truth will make you free".” // Booklet published in 1908 in Dresden by v. Zahn & Jaensch Publisher.
