33 Harvard Law Review 125 (1919)


This volume consists of a collection of essays, by sixteen contributors, on various topics of major interest in relation to a league of nations. The editor, Professor Duggan, one of the moving spirits of the League of Free Nations Association, has accomplished the purpose of eliciting a dispassionate discussion of some of the most pressing international problems of the day. Whether he has obtained substantial support for the particular Covenant now under examination by the world is more problematical. The essays were prepared immediately after the first draft of the Covenant and before the publication of the Treaty of Peace. Inasmuch as many provisions of the Treaty are difficult to dissociate from the Covenant, probably more trenchant comments would have been obtained by a slight postponement in preparation.
