The Essentials of International Public Law and Organization

By Amos S. Hershey | Go to book overview

International Law; the Law of War, into Land, Maritime, and Aërial Warfare. The Adjective Law of Nations is dealt with in Part IV under the heading "Settlement of International Disputes."

It is due to the American Journal of International Law to state that the historical chapters, as also the chapters on "The Succession of States" and "Aërial Space" have been previously published in that excellent periodical.

In conclusion, the author wishes to express his gratitude to his friend and colleague Professor Samuel Bannister Harding for valuable advice and assistance in the preparation of this volume.
