About the Author

Ruth Henig was an academic historian for over 30 years. She received her Ph.D in history from Lancaster University in 1978, where she lectured in modern international history. She became a senior lecturer and head of the History Department at Lancaster, and from 1997 to 2000 served as Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. She took early retirement in 2002, and in 2006 was one of six people to receive the first Honorary Fellowships of Lancaster University. She has published widely in 20th century international history, including four very successful Lancaster History Pamphlets, on the origins of the First and Second World Wars, on the Weimar Republic in Germany, and on Versailles and After, 1919-1933. Her other books include Evidence and Commentary : The League of Nations, Modern Europe 1870-1945 (with Chris Culpin), and Women and Political Power in Europe since 1945 (with Simon Henig). Ruth Henig enjoyed a parallel career in local government as a Lancashire County Councillor for 24 years and as a local magistrate. She chaired Lancashire's Police Authority for 16 years, and the national Association of Police Authorities for eight years from 1997–2005. In 2000, she was awarded a CBE for services to policing, and in 2002 was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant for Lancashire. She was appointed as a life peer in May 2004, and has sat in the House of Lords since June, 2004 as Baroness Henig of Lancaster. In December, 2007 she took up a three-year appointment as chair of the Security Industry Authority, the regulator of the private security industry.

By Garry S. Sklar on September 26, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This small volume about an important subject can only be called excessively superficial and ultimately inadequate. The United Nations,the scion of the League is at the center of world affairs on a daily basis. The League is therefore important as we need to understand its successes and failures as a guide to understanding the UN's abilities, failures and accomplishments. Twenty years of League history, the world of the 1920s and 30s leading to World War II cannot be covered in 187 pages. The book, nevertheless serves as an introduction to the topic. For more information, other sources must be read.
