Iraq's independence seemed a harbinger of things to come, but changing geo-political conditions meant it had no sequel. Between 1933 and 1937, three revisionist powers — Germany, Japan, and Italy — all left the League. Japan's Manchurian adventure and Italy's conquest of Ethiopia were claims for direct — and not internationalized — colonial control. Germany, too, abandoned its earlier support for greater international authority to make colonial and territorial claims. This preface tracks how these crises affected the Mandates Commission and placed the mandates system as a whole under pressure.

Keywords:   Manchuria, Abyssinia, revisionism, Theodoli, League of Nations, Mandates Commission
