War and Waste by David Starr Jordan is a series of lectures delivered on War and War Accessories. It is anti-war and the war machine. Much of the material is still thought provoking today, though some of it very dated as he was a proponent of 'eugenics'. Jordan was a scholar, educator, and scientist, specializing in ichthyology. His legacy has high spots and dark spots (he apparently helped cover up a murder). Fascinating piece of history.
This edition is a FIRST EDITION. It was published by Doubleday, Page & Co in 1913, and the material is copyrighted in 1912 from a series of lectures.
