This original volume collects most of his most important contributions to this field: The Legal and Political Aspects of the League of Nations (1918), The Reality of the League of Nations (c. 1919), The Covenant of the League: Great and Small Powers (1919) and History of the Law of Nations (1921). The first three, which discuss the League during its formative months in the context of contemporary international affairs, are little known today. The Reality of the League of Nations is published here for the first time. History of the Law of Nations, an outgrowth of his research in historical jurisprudence, is a brilliant synthesis of international law and legal history that elaborates many of the subjects treated in his Outlines in Historical Jurisprudence. In sum, this book introduces a lesser-known side of this important scholar. Published in association with The Vinogradoff Institute,
