While writing this book in 1917 Phillimore anticipated thedifficulties that would face diplomats at the conclusion ofthe First World War. Their task would be, he thought, "aCongress of Vienna, a Hague Conference and a GenevaConference rolled into one." Three Centuries of Treaties ofPeace, a historical analysis of treaties enacted from 1582to 1913, was intended to provide the diplomatic communitywith "some guidance for the future, that we should therebyacquire some explanation of the condition of Europe on thethreshold of the present war and see the position to whichprevious diplomatic settlements had brought us" (xii).Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
