Notes

First edition, first impression. Livingstone (c.1881-1970) was responsible for organising the Peace Ballot of 1934-35, a nationwide questionnaire of five questions intended to discern the British public's attitude towards the possibility of the upcoming war with a rearming and aggressive Germany, with voting on issues such as international disarmament and collective security. The results were published here in a report written by Livingstone and her colleagues on the National Declaration Committee. "They revealed overwhelming support for multilateral disarmament (90 per cent) and British membership of the League of Nations (nearly 96 per cent), but the ballot was soon rendered redundant by the collapse of collective security" (ODNB). From the publisher's archive.
