This course, suitable for all levels, begins with the international mood at the end of the Great War in 1918 – especially the USA’s 14 points for a just peace. We then look at the various treaties between 1919 and 1923, and the fate of efforts to set up permanent peacemaking provisions upto 1931. Why did the work of 1919-1923 fail?

In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert. Brian Sewell
