Chapter Summary

This book aims to survey the state of the contemporary international legal order. Attempting to catalogue the state of contemporary international law is, admittedly, an ambitious project, but one for which there is an impressive precedent. In the fall of 1931, Hudson delivered a remarkable series of lectures at the University of Idaho - a succinct survey of the state of the international order that he entitled &t;Progress in International Organization.&t; At every turn Hudson was an advocate for a modernist-positivist internationalism. Hudson reported on the UN Conference on International Organization, which met in San Francisco in April 1945,31 and which produced, inter alia, a draft statute for what would become the International Court of Justice. Hudson not only served in these institutions; he wrote compendiously about them and about international law more generally.
