The Fight Against War

EINSTEIN, ALBERT. The Fight Against War

New York: John Day, (c.1933)

Original wrappers. Price neatly blacked out at lower corner. Tiny chip from back wrapper. Very good.


This scarce collection of Einstein’s writings on war and peace was published in 1933, the year the Nazis took power in Germany and the year Einstein left Germany for the United States. In his prefatory note, Einstein writes, “Mr. Lief [the editor, Alfred Lief] has taken great trouble in collecting utterances of mine having pacifistic content and he presents them with my authorization. … I consider it my duty to confess my pacific conviction publicly. May the seriousness of my purpose be transferred to you, my readers! A. Einstein.”
