League of Nations


    “The League from Year to Year (1938)”, which has recently been issued by the Information Section of the Secretariat of the League of Nations, contains the usual concise account of the year's activities in sufficient detail to facilitate careful study of the political, legal and technical work of the various organs of the League of Nations. (Geneva: League of Nations; London: George Allen and Unwin, Ltd., 1939. Pp. 214. 1s.). Of special interest to scientific workers are the chapters on intellectual co-operation, the health organization, the communications and transit organization and those on the European conference on rural life and technical collaboration with China. A chapter dealing with refugees is included as well as one on mandates. The detailed chronological table of the principal events in the League's sphere of activity during the year, giving the dates of the meetings of the different organs of the League and of their principal decisions, as well as of world political events affecting the League's work introduced last year for the first time is again a feature of the new edition.
