The League of Nations and the Rule of Law
The League of Nations and the Rule of Law
By Sir Alfred Zimmern
Macmillan, 1936, 538 pp.

In these days when the so-called Old Diplomacy is celebrating resounding victories and funeral orations are being delivered over the League of Nations, this book, written by one of the most prominent advocates of the League, is particularly welcome. The subject treated is really broader than the title suggests. Sir Alfred gives an excellent brief review of the prewar system as well as of the organization and history of the League. He stresses the fact that in the postwar period the old and the new systems have existed side by side, leaving the problem of adjustment for the future.
