The Law Librarian Blog announced that a book called The Secret Treaties of History has won the Association of American Law Libraries Joseph L. Andrews Bibliographical Award. The book is by Edward Grosek, and it indexes treaties that nations entered into secretly. The book annotates 973 secret treaties (some going back to as early as 499 A.D.) among 110 nations.
The Law Librarian Blog notes correctly that is a unique resource for legal researchers. Grosek is an associate professor at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb Illinois and is in charge of the United Nations collection at the Founders Memorial Library. The book is now in its second edition, published by Hein.
