League of Nations

Histories, legacies and impact

Joy Damousi, Patricia O'Brien
League of Nations offers new perspectives on the history, legacies and impact of the League of Nations. The essays in this collection demonstrate how vastly diverse topics from film, education, Christian youth movements, colonial rule in the Pacific islands, national economic analyses, disarmament, humanitarianism and refugees as well as international relations, national sovereignty and domestic League of Nations associations—all led to Geneva. As well as the shared connection with Geneva and the League, the chapters are temporally aligned within the twenty-five-year lifespan of the League, from 1920 to 1946. Together the book revitalises the history of the League, and deepens understandings of how its 'many organs' operated and impacted on far-flung parts of the globe, simultaneously crossing borders and scholarly boundaries.
