Access this resource

‘For a good many years past I have been allowed to comment, in letters to “The Times”, upon points of International Law, as they have been raised by the events of the day. These letters have been fortunate enough to attract some attention, both at home and abroad … I have, accordingly, thought that it might be worth while to select, from a greater number, such of my letters as bear upon those questions of War and Neutrality of which so much has been heard in recent years …’, by Sir Thomas Erskine Holland, professor of International Law and fellow of All Souls College.
