Although he acknowledges that the war made a shambles of international law, he is hopeful that memories of the war's human and material costs when the fighting ends will lead to a renaissance of international law. Indeed, he predicts that nations will work to enforce it through a "World Tribunal." His conclusions are based an a careful analysis of the war's causes, its immediate effects on combatants, non-combatants and prisoners of war.
