New. $24.95 * Scott [1866-1943], a participant in the Versailles Conference, was an outstanding scholar of international law. This book grew out of a series of lectures delivered at New York University in 1924. Scott outlines a history of states gradually renouncing warfare in favor of international mediating agencies. His conclusions were overly optimistic, but his book remains valuable for its intellectual history of inter-state mediation and its insights into the relationship between sovereign states and the Hague Tribunal of Arbitration and the Permanent Court of International Justice.
