The peace movement in Britain had lost a little of its detachment by the end of World War II and the idealism it promoted diminished somewhat, but its special sense of mission remained unabated. Even as the peace movement's major reconstruction in 1914–15 had marked a significant break in its organizational continuity, it had been exploring the same intellectual agenda throughout the 1854–1945 period. Above all, it had been continuously posting two questions: whether reforms of domestic politics or interstate relations might not be achievable which would eventually abolish war, and whether an absolutist rejection of war might not bring about this abolition more directly.
