PREFACE.

The international law situations discussed at the Naval War College in 1910, as in former years, were such as are likely to arise, in which naval officers may be required to act under urgent and difficult conditions, and in which the law and precedents are not well established. The Declaration of London has suggested certain questions, and for the purpose of these discussions it has been assumed to be binding.

Mr. George Grafton Wilson, lately appointed professor of international law at Harvard, and still lecturer at Brown University, where he was for many years professor, who was himself a delegate to the International Naval Conference at London, conducted the discussions this year with the same ability and the same appreciation of the point of view of the naval officer that he has displayed for the past ten years as lecturer on international law at the Naval War College.

Officers are invited to propose situations for future discussion, either cases that have occurred within their own experience or questions left unsettled by the recent Conventions of The Hague or by the Declaration of London.

An index will shortly be published to the ten volumes on international law of the years 1901 to 1910, inclusive.
