This will at once become the authoritative treatment of the World Court. The author, long known as a close student of the subject, here presents an exhaustive scholarly analysis of earlier efforts to establish an international tribunal. The bulk of the book, however, is given over to a detailed study of the Court's organization, jurisdiction and procedure, and of the law which it applies. Many of the essential documents are also reprinted. The volume is based on all the available official and unofficial material and should prove valuable for the jurist as well as the student.
