These several works, products of the scientific research of the Institut fur auslandisches dffentliches Recht und Volkerrecht at Berlin, are, in my opinion, the outstanding contributions to the apparatus of international law since the publication of Moore's Digest of International Law. In making available source material, they attest the conviction that an accurate knowledge of the past is the most reliable guide for human progress, an axiom sometimes lost sight of in the concoction of intricate schemes for international government. At all events, Professor Bruns and his collaborators have in these volumes made available in readily accessible form an essential part of the materials out of which international law is compounded.
