In this book the development of international law and the achievement of an agreement on general and complete disarmament are seen as two processes which will have a strong and lasting impact on each other. It is on the basis of a progressive development of existing international institutions and international law that peaceful relations among states will evolve in a world in the course of laying down its arms.
