INTERNATIONAL LAW SITUATIONS.

PREFACE.

The studies in international law at the Naval War College during the summer of 1901 were under the immediate direction of Mr. John Bassett Moore, late Assistant Secretary of State, now of Columbia University. The mention to the service of his name gives assurance of the value of the present work. To his able and careful labors in the present instance the college is deeply indebted.

The situations were set by Mr. Moore, and tentative solutions were sent in by the several committees into which the officers in attendance are divided for the college work. The tentative solutions were then discussed orally, the discussions being presided over and directed by Mr. Moore, who prepared and read the accompanying notes, and who is also the author of the paper in the appendix, entitled "Maritime Law in the War with Spain." The printed solutions exhibit the consensus of opinion of all concerned.

It is believed that by proposing cases simulating those which have recently arisen, or which seem likely to arise under modern conditions, and bringing to bear in mutual discussion the thought and experience of the officers who make application of the law, and the trained mind of the international jurist who expounds it, a method has been adopted which must give to these solutions a practical value of great interest and weight.

The results are submitted to the service in the surety that they represent a valuable addition to work in a domain of thought which belongs peculiarly to navies.
