Utopian the plan of making states coterminous with nationalities, but admit that there should be within each state civil equality, religious liberty, and the free use of native languages, - at least in so far as the private, as opposed to the public and especially the official, use of language is concerned. Dr. Hildebrand believes that each question of nationality should be studied and answered separately, in accordance with actual facts, and that these questions can best be answered by each nation after the war, and not in the treaty of peace. Dr. Laun refers to the eight nationalities which contribute to the population of Austria, no one of them being in the majority, and argues that as Austria is "the cradle of protection to national minorities” (die Wiege des nationalen Minoritätenschutzes) it should become the model of "the law of nationalities" (Nationalitätenrecht).
Dr. Van Houten, of Holland, writing on the development of the Hague Conference as “The Way Out,” outlines and advocates a “Council of States for International Affairs” to represent the Conference when not in session, and to act as a council for conciliating disputes and for administering such tasks as those connected with the freedom of the sea, a sea-police, contraband, etc.
Dr. Lammasch, of Austria, contributes a careful critique of the Dutch committee's plan of an international organization for the pacific settlement of disputes. In the course of this, he supports the development of a genuine international court and commissions of inquiry and conciliation, but rejects (as does the Dutch committee also) the economic boycott and military force as sanctions of international institutions.
Writing under the caption of "An International Police," Baron Palmstierna, of Sweden, rejects the economic boycott as an insufficient sanction of international law and also a genuine international police force as impracticable, at the same time rather doubtfully advocating the pooling of all national armaments for this purpose.
Our own Mr. Taft advocates without any doubt or hesitation the use of both the economic boycott and an alliance of national armaments for the preservation of the peace, and answers in familiar form a halfdozen objections to such a sanction.
A reduction and limitation of armaments on land and sea, at the end of this war, is demanded by Hon. W. H. de Beaufort, of Holland, who regards this step as necessarily pari passu with the development of a satisfactory court of arbitration. Dr. Broda, of Switzerland,
coincides with this opinion, and discusses in much more detail than is usual some concrete plans for the limitation of land, water, and aërial armaments.
Mrs. Fannie Fern Andrews, of Boston, sketches the history of the American attempt to secure the exemption of noncontraband private property from capture in warfare on the sea, and quotes a number of American publicists, most of whom are opposed at present to this “American" proposal. She also states some of the current problems associated with contraband, blockade, the conversion of merchant ships, enemy merchant ships, war zones, mines, and submarines.
The last and the longest essay is contributed by Mr. Denys P. Myers, also of Boston, who writes on “The Control of Foreign Relations. This is an instructive historical account of the development of democratic control over foreign relations in various states of the Old World and the New, and shows the real progress that has been achieved in the past, while enabling the reflective reader to realize how much needs to be accomplished along this line, as along so many others, before the world is truly safe for democracy.
The volume as a whole, though by no means definitive, of course, on any of its topics, is well worth while, and the society under whose auspices it is published is to be congratulated on its persistent and intelligent efforts to internationalize the world's public opinion on the most pressing international problems of our time.
