This concluding chapter details the collapse of the institutions of the League and the practices of mandatory oversight in the early months of the Second World War. It shows how American intervention dictated another attempt at colonial ‘internationalization’; recovers the role of Ralph Bunche and others in the development of the United Nations trusteeship system; and analyzes how it drew upon and departed from the mandates regime. After summarizing the book's main argument about how the League's practices unintentionally undermined the imperial order, it sketches the fate of William Rappard and some of the other main characters.
