The League of Nations: The Principle and the Practice is a very profound and detailed study of the League of Nations which was the first international organization, unique in its own kind. The book was published for the first time in 1918 almost immediately after setting this organization. The author analyzes the reasons and purposes of its establishment, the main principles and the conditions of its practice. The book would appeal to everyone who is interested in the history of international organizations and who want to learn more about this period in the history of mankind.

Excerpt from book: at the same time that they may be valid by the external law; States being often obliged to acquiesce in such deviations from the former law in cases where they do not affect their perfect rights. () From this distinction of Vattel, flows what Wolf had denominated the voluntary law of nations, (jug gentium voluntarium,') to which term his disciple assents, although he differs from Wolf as to the manner of establishing its obligation. He however agrees with Wolf in considering the voluntary law of nations as a positive law, derived from the presumed or tacit consent of nations to consider each other as perfectly free, independent, and equal, each being the judge of its own actions, and responsible to no superior but the Supreme Ruler of the universe. Besides this voluntary law of nations, these writers enumerate two other species of international law. These are: 1. The conventional law of nations, resulting from compacts between particular States. As a treaty binds only the contracting parties, it is evident that the conventional law of nations is not a universal, but a particular law. 2. The customary law of nations, resulting from usage between particular nations. This law is not universal, but binding upon those States only which have given their tacit consent to it. Vattel concludes that these three species of international law, the voluntary, the conventional, and the customary, compose together the positive law of nations. They proceed from the will of nations; or (in the words of Wolf) " the voluntary, from their presumed consent; the conventional, from their express consent; and the customary, from their tacit consent." (d) It is almost superfluous to point out the confusion in this enumeration of the different species of international law, which might easi...

FIRST AND FUNDAMENTAL BEING A TREATISE ON METAPHYSICS BY JAMES McCOSH, D. D., LL. D., LITT. D. EX-PRESIDENT OF PRINCETON COLLEGE, AUTHOR OF METHOD OP DIVINE GOVERNMENT, LAWS OF DISCURSIVE THOUGHT, 1 PSYCHOLOGY OF THB COGNITIVE POWERS, PSYCHOLOGY OF THE MOTIVE POWERS REALISTIC PHILOSOPHY NEW YORK CHARLES SCRIBNERS SONS Copyright, 1889, Br CHARLES SCRIBNERS SONS. PREFACE. EVERY linking mind has occasion at times to refer to first principles. In this work I have set myself ear nestly to inquire what these are to determine their na ture, and to classify and arrange them into a science. In pursuing this end I have reached a Realistic Phi losophy, opposed alike to the Sceptical Philosophy, which has proceeded from Hume, in England, and the Idealistic Philosophy, which has ramified from Kant, in Germany while I have also - departed from the Scottish and higher French Schools, as I hold resolutely that the mind, in its intelligent acts, begins with, and proceeds throughout, on a cognition of things. If the mind does not assume and start with things, it can never reach realities by any process of reasoning or induction. This work contains the results of my teaching of very large classes in Queens College, Belfast, Ireland, and in Princeton College, America, and may be regarded as the cope-stone of what I have been able to do in philosophy. I have expounded my philosophy in the text, and put the historical and critical disquisitions in smaller print to be read continuously as carrying on the discussion, or to be reserved for reference as my readers may find it best suited to accomplish the end they have in view.
