Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It has no equivalent as regards to its comprehensive treatment of the topic, nor with respect to the great number of authors involved (and their overall unrivalled credentials). It is therefore likely that the book will remain one of the must-have research tools for academics in the field and practitioners alike." --Pierre-Emmanuel Dupont, Chinese Journal of International Law
