Despite the fact that excellent surveys of international organization and machinery have been published in recent years, this book should not be passed by without special mention. The author, long an active proponent of the League, reviews the evolution of the post-war period in concise and simple terms. Besides a discussion of the organization and procedure of the League and the Court, the book treats the position of the United States, the Locarno and Kellogg Pacts, and the perennial and urgent question of disarmament. It is a reasonable and well-balanced presentation.
