66 Reviews  J.A.L. up-to-the-minute analysis of the main problems in the international law of peace. Exigencies of writing and publishing such a work have meant that the law is effectively stated as it was in 1961, though more recent references have been added where possible. Because of the speed at which matters evolve in the African continent, this dating means that a number of problems which governments in Africa are particularly concerned with—the South West African dispute; the U.N. operations in the Congo; recognition as applying to Katanga; U.N. intervention in the domestic affairs of South Africa and Southern Rhodesia; the succession of newly independent states to treaty obligations entered into on their behalf by the colonial power during the period of colonial administration; the Ethiopia-Somalia dispute— could not be dealt with, at least so far as recent events and opinions have affected them. There is thus obviously scope for an annual survey of international legal problems as they affect Africa, which could base itself on the detailed analysis both of general principle and of particular cases which the author provides here. Professor O'Connell has, perhaps by reason of his residence in an Australian university, a special interest in a number of departments of international law which are of immediate application in Africa. First among these is the law of state succession, which he has made peculiarly his own. Other branches of the law dealt with by the author and which will be found of special interest by readers in Africa include: mandated and trust territories; the Commonwealth; acquisition of territory; international servitudes; international rivers; nationality; human rights and their protection; expropriation; contracts to which international persons are parties; and international tribunals. The value of the work for reference purposes is greatly enhanced by the appendices and tables provided, listing some of the most important treaties, United Kingdom Acts and Statutory Instrument; s, international and municipal cases, and treatises. A. N. AIXOTT The Effect of Independence on Treaties. A Handbook published under the auspices of The International Law Association. Prepared by the Committee on State Succession to Treaties and Other Governmental Obligations, London: Stevens & Sons. South Hackensack N.J.: Fred. B. Rothman & Co. 1965. XB, 391 pp. £5 5s. This compilation by the Committee on State Succession of the International Law Association examines contemporary practice with regard to the continuity of treaties affecting newly independent and previously colonial territories. Although it includes discussion of the practice in regard to non-Commonwealth countries (including the francophonic states of Africa) the present work is largely written from a Commonwealth angle. Indeed much, if not most, of its material relates to the African states and is, therefore, of great interest to the readers of this Journal. It will be found of the greatest value by all those concerned with the problem, politically, practically or academically. A.N.A.
