In this ambitious book two lawyers undertake to develop a detailed plan for the maintenance of world peace by means of an extensive revision of the United Nations Charter. At the heart of their proposal is the establishment of a permanent "world police force" and complete disarmament of all the nations. While one may argue about both the details and the general premises, the study has the great merit of being a thoroughgoing and not merely suggestive development of a thesis.
