During the turbulent decades of the 1920s-1930s,Lord Philip Noel-Baker,a former British international jurist and diplomat,put forward his well-laid thesis on collective security,which in turn caused a great deal of impact upon the contemporary academic and political circles.True,Noel-Baker was one of the pioneering scholars in teaching the discipline of international relations in Britain; equally he was deeply involved into the draft of the League of Nations Covenant and its functioning.Thus Noel-Baker was surely a well-established expert on international issues.In terms of his intellectual legacy on the concept of "international society",Noel-Baker did exert a significant impact on the study of IR including the "English School".Despite the accusation of him as "idealist" in view of the key issues on peace and war,Noel-Baker undoubtedly dedicated himself to the peace of the world.For that end,he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1959.
