The private and uncontrolled manufacture of arms and munitions and the traffic therein has become a serious source of international discord and strife, ? ? President Franklin D. Roosevelt said. ? The time has come to take the profit out of war. ? ? So strong ran the feeling against weapons manufacturers that a Senate investigation was perhaps inevitable. In Search of Peace affords for the first time a complete record of the investigation headed by Senator Gerald P. Nye of North Dakota. It tells a story which ranks in drama and significance with the Teapot Dome scandal, the Army-McCar-thy hearings, and the Alger Hiss investigation. Individuals who profited from war, the Nye Committee sought to show, especially munitions makers, constituted a major threat to peace. Without restrictions upon the arms trade it was felt that disarmament would be a farce. Such trade created a vested interest in war and caused individuals who prospered by it to go to great lengths to promote antagonism, suspicion, and conflict. After txventy months, the committee reluctantly concluded that the mer-chants-of-death thesis had only limited validity. To all purposes the issue was removed from the public limelight until President Eisenhower, on leaving office, warned against? the acquisition of unwarranted influence? ? by? the military-industrial complex. ? ? This study describes the background behind the formation of the Nye Committee, the operation of the investigation, and its influence, both temporary and long range. In view of the growing concern over America as a? warfare state, ? ? its message is of particular relevance today. 277 pages.
