The Development of International Law after the World War

INTRODUCTORY NOTE

FOR the past twenty years nobody has been more interested than the author of this little book in the creation of an international law which shall meet the needs of the world and be developed in accordance with the principles of justice which either are or should be universally accepted.

In these circumstances it was to be expected that Professor Nippold would be profoundly moved by the outbreak of the war in 1914; that he would follow its conduct, especially on the part of the Germans, with intense interest and relentless criticism, inasmuch as he had foreseen in Prussian militarism danger of a catastrophe, and in the success of Prussian militarism the blasting of hopes for a rational system of international relations in the future, of which he had made himself in a way the protector and the prophet. Germany's conduct in the war is the subject of a series of monographs from his facile pen which is in course of publication.
