The Charter of the United Nations: A Commentary

Edited by Bruno Simma
Oxford University Press, 1995
1,258 pp. $220.00

This formidable tome is a detailed, article-by-article commentary on the U.N. Charter by a group of German, Austrian, and Swiss legal experts. It provides extensive background on the legislative history, interpretation, and application of the document. While of use to specialists in international law, this volume's appeal to the general reader is likely to be limited.
