Mr. Turlington's close analysis of the experience of neutral nations in the last war is especially good for its tentative figures on the losses incurred through contraband seizures, blockades, embargoes, etc. In general, neutral losses were more than offset by the profits from expanded exports. In the other volume, Professor Jessup summarizes the conclusions to be drawn from the history of neutrality in modern times. He points out that the World War did not raise any fundamentally new problems of neutrality. He also insists that in spite of the many violations of neutral rights in war time, international law is far from useless as a protection for neutrality. His discussion of the alternative policies intended to keep America out of future wars deserves careful study. He makes it perfectly clear that peace can be maintained only at a high price.
