The first volume of the collected papers of Sir Hersch Lauterpacht contained three general works. The second volume begins a systematic coverage of the rest of his work presented roughly in accordance with a plan Lauterpacht himself drew up for a possible textbook. The book contains papers falling within the introductory section, dealing with International Law in general, though materials later included in separately published works have normally been excluded. Three papers - 'On Realism, Especially in International Relations', 'Professor Carr on International Morality' and 'International Law after the Second World War' - have not been published before and one, The Reality of the Law of Nations', has only had very limited circulation. The whole work continues the carefully organized presentation of the work of a very distinguished international lawyer.
