|Abstract||From 1895, the year he published his first signed article, to four days before his death when he wrote his last, Bertrand Russel was a powerful figure in the world of mathematics, philosophy, human rights and the struggle for peace. During his liftime he published 70 books, almost as many pamphlets and over 2,000 articles. The No-Conscription Fellowship: Pacifism and Revolution, 1916-18 is the fouteenth volume in an extensive collection of the writings of Bertrand Russel. This book begins when Russel became the Acting Chairman of the No-Conscription Fellowship (NCF) very soon after the establishment of the Lloyd George coalition which signaled official British resolve to defeat Germany decisively. This uncompromising determination was matched by the German decision in January of 1917 to initiate unrestricted submarine warfare. The No-Conscription Fellowship: Pacifism and Revolution, 1916-18 contains many short papers reflecting Russel's immediate responses todevelopments in the conflict as seen as from his position as the most important political commentator for the official publication of the NCF, The Tribunal.|
