The International Secretariat
The International Secretariat
By Egon F. Ranshofen-Wertheimer
Carnegie Endowment, 1945, 500 pp.

In this monograph a former member of the League of Nations Secretariat describes in exact detail the organization and functioning of that "great experiment in international administration." Though he has in general eschewed political issues, these have inevitably obtruded themselves, particularly in his inner history of the Secretariat and in his evaluation of its successes and failures.
