Duxbury's book represents a valuable contribution not only to the field of the history of international organisations but noticeably also to the literature on the law of international organisations. A clear structure and language, a solid methodology and a straightforward argumentation make the book an informative and stimulating read for a broad audience in the field of international law.'
