Abstract:

The World Peace Through the Rule of Law idea has this primary objective to strengthen the body, the machinery, the acceptance, and the sanctions of international law so that law will increasingly come to occupy the place in international affairs that it does in the domestic affairs of civilized nations. For years people have been calling for a positive plan for world peace. Everyone knows that past efforts have been too often negative. Get rid of war. Get rid of armaments. But we cannot just get rid of these things and leave a vacuum. Something else must be put in their place. What is that something In the human story, it has always been law. The author looks at the origin and development of the international law system, a procedure for the building of a law structure of peace, the organizations that are helping to build the program, and the need for government leadership worldwide in the carrying out of the program.
