The 1899 Hague Peace Conference

`The Parliament of Man, the Federation of the World'; Photography by Bert and Lilian Mellink

Review Quote

' It is handsomely illustrated and full of illuminating detail about the happenings a century ago at The Hague. But it is much more than a glossy book for the reader's coffee table. It contains a wealth of data that the serious student of international law and its history would otherwise have to look up in a variety of sources...' The American Journal of International Law, 94. Winner of the ASIL Certificate of Merit 2000.
