Part I of the present monograph was issued in 1945 in mimeographed form for the use of a restricted circle of interested persons in connection with the United Nations Conference at San Francisco. The completed study is now published as number nine of the series of Studies in the Administration of International Law and Organization sponsored by the Division of International Law of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
The author, a distinguished Australian scholar, served for many years in responsible positions in the League of Nations Secretariat and gained insight into the inner working of the great experiment in trusteeship over dependent areas carried out by the League.
In keeping with a well-established tradition of allowing authors full liberty in appraising facts and expressing views as long as this is done in a truly scientific and constructive spirit, no attempt has been made to limit the free expression of the author's viewpoints. The Endowment is not, however, to be identified with any opinions expressed in this stimulating study.
Annexed to the text is an important collection of documentary material which the reader will find particularly helpful in his study of the character, limitations, and advantages of the mandate system as defined in Article 22 of the League Covenant, and in relation to the important problem of trusteeship under the United Nations.
