The authors have aimed to prepare a brief introduction to the
subject of International Law. They have freely used the substantive
material as found in cases, codes, etc., which involve the principles
of International Law. Owing to the increasing importance of
international negotiation, relatively more attention than usual has
been given to matters connected with diplomacy. The appendices
contain material which the authors have found advantageous to
have easily accessible to each student. The study of this book
should in all cases be supplemented by reference to a considerable
number of the books mentioned in the bibliography.
