New. $95. * Written a year before the Versailles Conference, this book proposes the formation of a league of nations modeled on the government of the United States. (Each nation would be akin to a U.S. state.) Moving from theory to practice, Minor offers an outline of the league and how it would function. The appendix contains the texts of the U.S. Constitution and a proposed constitution of a league of nations in parallel columns. A stimulating contribution to international law, it is equally interesting for its thoughts on the U.S. Constitution. Minor [1869-1923] was a distinguished professor of constitutional and international law at the University of Virginia.
