A title in the Lawbook Exchange series Foundations of theLaws of War. Efforts to enforce world peace during the 20thcentury through international organizations created a demandfor a legal definition of aggression. A U.N. committeeattempted to provide one in a 1956 report. Stone rejected itfor two reasons. Citing a broad array of examples, he showsthat the concept of aggression eludes definition. Moreimportant, he argues that a definition is not necessary forthe goals of international peace-enforcement. "ProfessorStone puts forward his arguments with his usual greatlearning and persuasiveness; the result is a stimulating andsane study of a problem whose discussion has so often beencharacterized by sterility and lack of proportion.": JohnCollier, Cambridge LJ 1960 (1960) 247.
