This list, originally undertaken in the fall of 1914 to meet the immediate needs of the Division of Economics and Sociology, makes no pretension to completeness. Time has not been available to look up documentary sources or to examine thoroughly the literature of individual wars. Effort has been made, however, to give the list value by confining it to material of some actual merit. The European war of 1914-15, it will be noted, has been excluded from its scope.

Mr. George S. Maynard assisted in the preliminary work upon the list.
