Salvador de Madariaga (1886-1978)

Spanish author and diplomat. In 1922 Madariaga became head of the disarmament section of the League of Nations. After teaching at Oxford (1928-31), he served as Spanish ambassador to the United States and France. His resignation (1936) followed his disaffection with the republic; he took no part in the civil war. His literary work, written in Spanish, French, and English, is voluminous; it includes history, international relations, literary criticism, and social psychology. Madariaga's point of view is liberal and humanist, his style classical.
