Excerpt

In 1921 the Division of International Law of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace published "Treaties and Agreements with and concerning China, 1894-1919," in two volumes, compiled and edited byJohn V. A. MacMurray , now American Minister in Peking.

The present collection of documents is, in a sense, a continuation of Mr. MacMurray's compilation, inasmuch as it contains the texts of the principal treaties and agreements with and concerning China concluded since the publication of his work. But it is not intended to, nor does it, include all or even most of the documents which might properly be contained in a collection as comprehensive as Mr. MacMurray's; nor does it have the historical commentary to be found in the larger work.

It is hoped that the general public, and more specifically the colleges teaching international law and related subjects, will find in this pamphlet the information necessary to meet their purposes. It is issued in response to requests and suggestions from various sources that the agreements concluded in recent years touching the interests of China be made generally accessible in some convenient form.

JAMES BROWN SCOTT, Director of the Division of International Law.

WASHINGTON, D. C., July 1, 1929.
