This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 258 pages of information about Peaceless Europe.

I have sought in this book to point out in all sincerity the things that are in store for Europe; what perils menace her and in what way her regeneration lies.  In my political career I have found many bitternesses; but the campaign waged against me has not disturbed me at all.  I know that wisdom and life are indivisible, and I have no need to modify anything of what I have done, neither in my propaganda nor in my attempt at human regeneration, convinced as I am that I am serving both the cause of my country and the cause of civilization.  Blame and praise do not disturb me, and the agitations promoted in the heart of my country will not modify in any way my conviction.  On the contrary, they will only reinforce my will to follow in my own way.

Truth, be it only slowly, makes its way.  Though now the clouds are blackest, they will shortly disappear.  The crisis which menaces and disturbs Europe so profoundly has inoculated with alarm the most excited spirits; Europe is still in the phase of doubt, but after the cries of hate and fury, doubt signifies a great advance.  From doubt the truth may come forth.
