Brings to light the judicial influence of the International Court of Justice on the development of international law...the findings will surely be important outside academic circles as well as inside them. Laurence Boisson de Chazournes, The American Journal of International Law The two editors and their collaborating authors, in conjunction with OUP, have succeeded in producing a book that is as up-to-date with the Court's decisions so far as is ever possible ... This collection is highly recommended reading, and not merely for those whose interest is concentrated on the ICJ; it will provide generalists also with a vivid tour d'horizon of current movements in international law from the viewpoint of The Hague.
