Excerpt

This story of international lawlessness in the first year of the Great War is the outgrowth of a public lecture given at New York University in March, 1915.

The book was written because it seemed to me that we Americans were paying too much attention to the affairs of belligerents and too little to our own.

After all, we are by no means untouched by the war. It imperils not only our present material interests but also neutral rights upon which the material interests of all peaceful nations in the future depend.

The neutral world is watching for us to realize and assert its rights and ours. Hence this statement of what those rights are and this record of what seems to have occurred to threaten them.

EDWIN J. CLAPP.

University Heights,
New York,
August, 1915.
