First published in 1956, this book formed part of the Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law series. The text presents an account regarding the legal principles governing the consequences of changes of sovereignty, focusing particularly on British practice during the preceding 150 years. The legal principles governing British practice are compared with those of other states in order to record the main points of doctrinal agreement or divergence. Special importance is given to practice following the Second World War, in particular the partition of British India in 1947. Tables of cases and statutes are included.

This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in comparative and international law.
