The Position of States Before National Courts

By Eleanor Wyllys Allen

Macmillan, 1933, 345 pp.

In this study, made under the auspices of the Bureau of International Research, the author sets out to examine the actual practice of the courts of Continental Europe and then to analyze the decisions of recent years. She brings out the changing measure of immunity and the growing influence of economic activities. There is no uniform practice among the courts of the Continent in this matter, and the author doubts the feasibility of an international convention.
