Harriman, Edward A. The Constitution at the Cross Roads: A Study of the Legal Aspects of the League of Nations, The Permanent Organization of Labor and the Permanent Court of International Justice. New York: George H. Doran Company, [1925]. xv, 274 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-314-6. Cloth. $75. * With the adoption of the Constitution, the original states lost their right to settle disputes between themselves by means of war. Harriman enlarges this discussion to the United States' place in the world and the maintenance of its independence following the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. Written in 1925, Harriman offers a thorough, organized treatment of the extent of the legal consequences in which the Constitution of the United States may be affected by the Treaty of Versailles and the United States' resulting membership in the League of Nations and the Permanent Court of International Justice. He presents his study with this statement: "The Constitution is at the cross roads. In one direction leads the way of national tradition and absolute independence; in the other, the way of surrender of absolute independence of action in some degree, to a federation of the world." (Preface, v.)
