Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Recent events in the Far East have made it apparent that the international community is not yet in a position to confide the efficacy of its standards to the moral force of public opinion and that the use of force short of war—such as bombardment, occupation of territory, blockade, and intervention—has remained legally untouched by post-War treaties and agreements to minimize or outlaw war. The necessity for limiting the use of armed force raises the question of providing sanctions for international law. Albert Hindmarsh’s study considers this whole question. He traces the evolution of coercive sanctions short of war from individual self-help to state self-help and finally to current attempts to bring to the aid of world peace the organized physical as well as moral force of the international community.
