Abstract

The piece offers a series of sketches of the League of Nations, as seen from a ’centenary’ distance. Three of these sketches provide a highly condensed account of the League’s life; a further two draw out some of its legacies. Taken together, they present a highly impressionistic picture of the first‚ world organization, but one that hopefully captures essential aspects of the League and draw the readers’ eye to features that are worth remembering a century onwards.
