World constitutions illustrated. World treaty library.
Discusses the history of the political control of the straits--the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles. Includes the texts of some relevant treaties signed from 1920 to 1939. The first half of the history was originally part of a memorandum commissioned in 1918 by the Americans for use in negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference; this was then printed in 1921 as a pamphlet. The second half of the history, which was written by Francis Deák, covers the history of the straits from the Congress of Berlin (1878) until 1939 or 1940.
