Nineteenth Century (periodical)


Nineteenth Century (periodical)

"Nineteenth Century" was a British monthly literary magazine founded in 1877 by Sir James Knowles.

In 1901, the title was changed to "Nineteenth Century and After". The magazine notably asserted, shortly before the outbreak of World War I in 1914, that "the only court in which nations' issues can and will be tried is the court of God, which is war."Fact|date=November 2007
