A fundamental monograph on an aspect of international law which has become very important as a result of the peace treaties. The author has collected material in the American archives and in Europe, and here presents a reasoned statement of the law and practice. She is convinced that, in view of the ever-growing interdependence of the nations of the world, the application of servitudes offers a convenient means for facilitating distribution of goods, for improving communications and for solving military problems, the more so as they need not infringe upon the sovereignty of the servient states. The book is well documented and contains an exhaustive bibliography.
