Description : Professor Suy occupies a prominent place in international law, both as an academic lawyer as well as the former Under-Secretary-General & Legal Counsel of the United Nations. His activities as a teacher, scholar, UN Legal Counsel, keynote speaker on many occasions & as a legal advisor to Belgian & foreign governmental authorities naturally led to the sub-divisions of this volume, such as the law of international organizations, the law of the European Union, the law of armed conflict, & the peaceful settlement of disputes. The contributions, all by friends of Eric Suy, present the vast panorama of his intellectual pursuits.
Description : This volume collects papers written by Shabtai Rosenne in the course of his distinguished career on various topics, primarily in the areas in which he is best known for his expertise: international litigation and courts, the law of treaties, the law of the sea and state responsibility. His writing on fact-finding before the International Court of Justice, treaty succession, codification and the framework agreement as the basis for the jurisdiction of the ICJ in particular remain as interesting, timely and essential today as when they were first written. The collection is accompanied by a table of cases, a table of treaties and an index for easy reference.

Description : Professor Ian Brownlie, CBE, OC, FBA, DCL retired from the Chichele Chair of Public International Law at the University of Oxford, a post that he has held since 1980. Before that he taught at Oxford, Nottingham, and the London School of Economics. He is widely recognized as one of the leadinginternational lawyers of our time, and as well known and appreciated as much for his seminal publications and teaching over the years, as for his work as a practitioner.To express their gratitude for his supervision and support, a number of his present and former students from Oxford and London (many now prominent in academic life, foreign affairs, and practice), have written this collection of essays in honour of their former teacher. The collection is a verypersonal one reflecting the close and warm relationship between teacher and students and results in a wide-ranging overview of the subjects supervised by Professor Brownlie during more than forty years as an academic teacher.The collection takes its title, The Reality of International Law, from an appreciation of Professor Brownlie's personal contribution to the development of the subject. His commitment to international law as a system for the regulation of affairs between states has long been characterized by astrong sense of ideals, political and human, but also by an awareness, duly transmitted to his students, and of what law is in practice, of what is achievable, and of what remains to be done.
Description : This volume contains a consolidated reproduction of Part One (articles 1 to 35) of the Draft Article on State Responsibility & their important Commentaries, prepared by the International Law Commission in the period ending in 1980. These articles deal with the origin of international responsibility, including general principles, the act of State, breach of an international obligation, & circumstances precluding wrongfulness. They were drawn up on the basis of eight reports submitted by the Special Rapporteur, Professor, now Judge Roberto Ago. An introduction written by Shabtai Rosenne traces the history of the official codification of the topic of State Responsibility since the League of Nations first broached the matter in 1924. State Responsibility is central to the daily practice of international law, & its systematic treatment is central to the codification process. The International Law Commission is continuing work on the topic. In the meantime, the articles of Part One, now concentrated for the first time in a single volume, are the major starting point for this work. This volume will be of great value to practitioners, teachers & students of international law. Shabtai Rosenne was a member of the International Law Commission from 1962 to 1971, when the basic decisions regarding the approach to the current phase of the work were taken.
