Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Extradition in Multilateral Treaties and Conventions contains the table of contents, foreword, comments and acknowledgments, introduction, and notes about the authors of the book. The book deals with extradition as provided for in multilateral treaties and conventions, a subject of continuing interest in the context of international law and relations. It has become very special importance in view of the global campaign against the growing use of narcotics and the need to utilize all legal processes including extradition to enhance the effort. On March 27, 1879 the representatives of seven South American and two Central American countries participating in the American Congress of Jurists held in Lima, Peru, signed a Treaty on Extradition. During the period from 1889 to 1940 the American countries entered into other multilateral treaties and conventions on extradition and on asylum, of both regional and inter-American scope.
