Notes

First edition, first impression. With a presentation inscription from Sidney Webb to Professor Phillip Bradley dated 25 November 1925 pasted to the front free endpaper. Loosely inserted is an autograph letter from Webb to Bradley from 28 July 1936, in which Webb writes that he read Bradley's Road to War "with almost painful interest as it is so like what is now happening though not inevitably with the same results". How to Pay for the War was concerned with the means by which debts incurred by the war could be ameliorated and how government and the economy could be restructured to achieve this. Many of its suggestions were partly implemented by the post-war governments, although not as a direct result of the book.
