SURVEY OF INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS

Toynbee was with the Royal (at first British) Institute of International Affairs from its move to Chatham House in 1924 until June 1955.

The Survey of International Affairs was published by OUP under its auspices between 1925 and 1977 and covered the years 1920 to 1962. Surveys for a particular year often deal with matters outside the year.

This list names main contributors during the Toynbee years. In some later volumes Toynbee’s contributions are only a note or introduction.

The list deals with i) title page, ii) pre-contents front matter, iii) table of contents, iv) post-contents front matter. Referring to Part, Chapter and Section gives an idea of the hierarchy (not necessarily length) of contributions within each volume, but the divisions are not comparable between one volume and another.

INTER-WAR SERIES

i) By Arnold J. Toynbee.

ii) Preface by G. M. Gathorne-Hardy. Note by the Writer, signed A. J. T., with acknowledgements. Neither dated.

Gathorne-Hardy: “Ever since its foundation during the Peace Conference at Paris, the British Institute of International Affairs has had in view the publication of an annual survey of the chief events in international relations. It was, however, determined that a History of the Peace Conference should first be produced. The sixth and final volume of the History of the Peace Conference of Paris [above, to which Toynbee contributed] appeared in March 1924, and the Executive Committee of the Institute then decided to make preparations for the first volume of the annual survey, for the year 1924, and at the same time for connecting this volume with the History of the Peace Conference of Paris by a separate survey designed to cover the intervening years.

“The Committee was fortunate in securing the services of Mr. Arnold J. Toynbee to carry out the very arduous and difficult task of writing this introductory volume – the Survey of International Affairs, 1920-3 – and to bring out the first volumes of the annual survey. The first of the series – the Survey of International Affairs for 1924 – will be published during the autumn.

“The volume entitled The World after the Peace Conference [listed above], which is appearing simultaneously with the present volume, was originally written as an introduction to this volume, but owing to limitations of space it was found necessary to publish it separately.”

DOCUMENTS ON INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS

A complementary series, Documents on International Affairs, covering the years 1928-1963, was published by OUP between 1929 and 1973. Toynbee supervised the compilation of the first of the 1939-46 volumes, and wrote a Preface for both that and the 1947-48 volume:

Documents on International Affairs, 1939-1946, Vol I, March-September 1939, OUP, Under the auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, 1951

Documents on International Affairs, 1947-1948, OUP, Under the auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, 1952

~~~

This list, though compiled independently of Morton, includes all published items of 70 pages or more in length listed in S. Fiona Morton, A Bibliography of Arnold J. Toynbee, with a Foreword by Veronica M. Toynbee, OUP, 1980, except

  • his contributions to the 13th and 14th editions of the Encyclopædia Britannica, which may have exceeded 70 pages per edition
  • material published only outside the English-speaking world (reprints of journalism or of locally-delivered lectures, selections from his works for Japanese or other readers, etc)
  • translations of his works.

Dialogues published in the English-speaking world, books edited by Toynbee or co-authored with one other writer or collaborator, and the Survey of International Affairs are mentioned even when his contributions may have amounted to fewer than 70 pages.

Publication dates are for first editions (first book publication of the relevant material). The list does not show order of publication within a given year. Nor does Morton’s list. The place of publication is London unless otherwise stated. If a work was published simultaneously in the UK and elsewhere, only the UK details are shown.

Details of prefaces and other front matter are shown for the Survey volumes, but not systematically for other volumes.

Most of Toynbee’s letters, lectures, journalism and broadcasts have not been collected or published in book form. Morton does not list

  • letters to the press
  • broadcasts that had not, to her knowledge, been preserved on film or tape unless they were subsequently printed, and those are listed as articles.

Paget Toynbee rebuked his nephew in writing for not differentiating his name from that of the other Arnold Toynbee, Paget’s late brother, on the title page of Nationality and the War, Dent, 1915. Given the fame of the earlier Arnold Toynbee and Arnold J. Toynbee’s obscurity in 1915, the rebuke seems justified. Most of his subsequent books – except for his other Dent production of 1915, The New Europe, and a few at the end of his life  were signed Arnold J. Toynbee.

    Which of Toynbee’s books or papers was the source of the philosophy of grasping the future in ‘The Toynbee Convector’ story?

    Danny

    I’m afraid I don’t know. Please let me know if you find out. And I have a confession to make: I’ve never read Bradbury’s story, though I have read Fahrenheit 451!

  3. Vladimir Agafonov Says:

    In one of Sir Arnold Toynbee’s articles about Alexander the Great (in Russian translation of 1979 – I do not know the original name) I’ve found that Alexander decided to send his mother with some Greec veterans to Socotra island in the Indian Ocean – but from the text I didn’t understand if he did it really and what source is a reference for this statement?

    Which of Toynbee’s articles is this and what sources did he use for this statement?

    Vladimir

    I wish I could help. The web might have information.

    I will let you know if I learn anything.

    I now see that Socotra is your subject:

  5. Vladimir Agafonov Says:

    Thank you, David. This information which I’am asking for could be of interest not only for people interested in this firy tale island. The common idea was that Alexander sent a mission of Greek force after being advised by Aristotle to take control over Socotra as a source of the best aloe in the world. Sir Toynbee’s version of Alexander’s attampt to selve “ the Olympias problem ” by sending her to Socotra presents a new look at this historical semi-legendary event.

    The Toynbee’s article name in Russian translation sounds like “When (If) Alexander Did not Die So Early..” and was first published in Russian in a popular magazine “Znaniye-Sila” in Moscow in December 1979 (I just have found it in the web).

    The publication in buzzle.com is mine: I’ve provided consultations for this serial and did a lot for its interpreter- hero “to be born”. However the final result was even better than I could expect.

  6. davidderrick Says:

    Now I know what you are referring to! This essay is in a book called Some Problems of Greek History, Oxford University Press, 1969. If I owned it, I would scan this part for you, but I assume that the Russian version you have found is adequate.

    David

  7. davidderrick Says:

    I will send it if I get hold of it, but it sounds like part of a speculation, and therefore not fact. Please send me a text by you about Socotra. I would be delighted to post it here from you as a “guest contributor”, if you agree.

    By the way, Toynbee declined a knighthood, so he is not Sir.

    David

  8. Vladimir Agafonov Says:

    Thank you a lot. And shall be very pleased to have this text even a frgment of it connected with the issue of Socotra – I actually like to post this rare information to Socotrans now interested in their ancient history.

    Vladimir

  9. davidderrick Says:

    Vladimir also wrote by email:

    David,

    I also replied to you on the site: thank you a lot for informing me about this Toynbee’s essay. In fact, the island of beauty and unreal nature is turning from May till October in a terrible place with the season winds. In the rest of times it was a real fairy tale when I visited it long time ago. Now I am an independent Soqotri language and folklore researcher living in Moscow, Russia. With some Socotran genuine fairy tales collected, translated and published by me in Russian, English and German. As well as a little nomber of scientific publications of Soqotran texts with translation and comments in English (CLN, Folia Orientalia – in print).

    I like to make this Toynbee’s fragment connecting Socotra known to the modern Socotrans who now like to know their history as well.

    Vladimir
