Divided into two parts, the work begins with a general history of international relations since the Middle Ages. Other chapters examine earlier methods of international arbitration, the Hague Peace Conferences of 1899 and 1907 and preliminary developments in the early 1900s that would later influence the league's character. Additional topics include the Congress of Vienna and the Alabama case. The second part examines the establishment of the league, then proceeds to article-by-article commentary of its charter (or Covenant). Pollock also includes an appendix containing the texts of source materials and early drafts of the charter.
