PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION

This work -- the product of considerable experience in the study and teaching of International Law -- aims to furnish the teacher and student with an up-to-date text adapted to the needs of the classroom, and also to present the specialist as well as the general public with a scientific treatise on the subject.

In the organization of the subject, the writer has adopted the newer and, as he believes, the more convenient as well as scientific system of classification. The Law of Peace is thus mainly divided into "Subjects" and "Objects" of
