“WHILE ENGLAND (AND RUSSELL) SLEPT: THE START OF WORLD WAR I”
by Kenneth Blackwell
Delivered at the annual meeting of the Bertrand Russell Society, University of Windsor, June 2014

Correspondence just prior to August 4, 1914 shows that Russell, in company with almost everyone else outside the Foreign Office, was unaware of the serious state of international relations. I read extracts from letters, both newly acquired and ones long familiar to researchers, and relate his experience to his later political watchfulness even to his possible exculpation of Sir Edward Grey's secret diplomacy.
