The Cause of World Unrest: The hidden conspiracy to produce revolution, communism and anarchy is a 1920 book by British author and journalist Howell Arthur Gwynne, on claimed Jewish conspiracies, particularly in relation to the developments of the then contemporary ascent of Communism under Lenin. The book is based upon a series of 18 articles that appeared in The Morning Post in July 1920 which referenced the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. The articles appeared with no bylines but recent research has determined Ian Colvin, Nesta Webster and Morning Post editor Howell Gwynne were the main authors.[1]

The book charts the political development of claimed subversive movement through freemasonry, the Illuminati, the various Jacobin and Carbonari movement, before eventually ending up at Communism. An editor of the Morning Post newspaper, one of its journalists in Russia at the time Victor E. Marsden—who helped Arthur Cherep-Spiridovich to escape—witnessed the events and had reported back the Jewish demography of the Communists.

It was released in the United States the same year by George Haven Putnam's publishing firm G. P. Putnam's Sons. The Jewish Anti-Defamation League led a campaign against it, eventually causing Putman to recall the remaining copies. He cited the fact that all other publishers, who had published The Protocols, which was a companion to The Cause of World Unrest, had been forced into financial difficulties soon after. In any case, it is similar to The Dearborn Independent articles of Henry Ford, released soon after.
