AALL presents the Joseph L. Andrews Bibliographical Award to Edward Grosek for his work, The Secret Treaties of History. As the title states, the book indexes treaties that nations entered into secretly. Some treaties trace back as early as 499 A.D. The result of the longtime effort of Grosek, this work includes 110 nations involved in secret treaties. The book annotates 973 secret treaties and includes an annotated bibliography, as well as an important country index. It is a unique resource that researchers in a variety of disciplines-from history to law to political science-can use.
Grosek is currently associate professor at Northern Illinois University and is in charge of the United Nations collection at the Founders Memorial Library. He has published a number of articles on government information.
