PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION

The authors have in this new edition introduced changes made necessary by the development of international relations. The wars of recent years and the results of the Hague Conference have greatly modified earlier practice. Appendix X contains the Convention for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes. Appendix XI contains the Convention with Respect to the Laws and Customs of War on Land. The other codes and rules printed in the Appendices in a measure supplement this Convention and give an opportunity for valuable comparison.

The authors express their appreciation of the reception which the first edition has received.

PREFACE

The authors 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.
