Excerpt from The Problem of the Pacific in the Twentieth Century The object of this book is to disclose to the reader the essence of the problem of the Pacific. In no other sphere of human activities are people as prone to nourish illusions as in the domain of phenomena affecting the commonwealth as a whole. To nourish such illusions is, however, as dangerous an error as to approach a precipice blindfolded. For this reason the author has aimed chiefly at restricting himself to the realm of realities in dealing with the problem of the Pacific. One of these realities is the necessity of all international agreements being backed by actual force. We may deplore this fact the more bitterly that mankind has but recently suffered such heavy losses in blood and treasure; but such is the present condition of the world, and it must be taken into account, more especially in a treatise, for such is the primary principal of positive science in search of the truth. The realities of so vast a problem as that of the Pacific can only be understood if the investigator embraces the entire field of social, economic, political and military conditions appertaining to the problem.
