(p.10) Chapter 1 ‘The Two Internationals’
Modernism, Internationalism and the Russian Revolution

David Ayers

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter outlines the attempts of journalists in the New Age and the New Statesman to understand and evaluate the events of the Russian Revolution as they occurred, with reference to such figures as Alfred Orage and Julius West. It then describes elements of early nationalities discourse in the writings of Leonard Woolf and J.A. Hobson, who debated the potential of a League of Nations as the basis of a postwar peace. These discourses about the Revolution and League would begin to change as the Revolution developed and Woodrow Wilson threw American weight behind the League.

Keywords:   The New Age, The New Statesman, Leonard Woolf, J.A. Hobson, Alfred Orage, Julius West, Woodrow Wilson
