9780198257035: The Charter of the United Nations: A Commentary

Written as a guide to the U.N. Charter for practicing lawyers as well as scholars, this Commentary is a unique piece of scholarship, the product of impeccable research by an internationally recognized group of experts. Originally published to wide acclaim in German, the Commentary provides an article-by-article account of the legislative history, interpretation, and practical application of each Charter provision, and is the first commentary in any language to take into account the complete workings of the U.N. The English translation has been fully revised and updated since the appearance of the German edition, with most of the articles updated to November 1993. One of the most significant collaborative projects ever undertaken in the field of international law, this is the first Commentary on the U.N. Charter to be published since 1969 and the only one in any language to take into account its practice and procedure. At once scholarly, authoritative, and immensely practical, this single volume will make a significant impact on the ways in which the U.N. Charter is discussed and understood.

Review:


"The project Simma has put together is excellent and will be very useful...Simma has gathered virtually all of the leading experts...this will be a definitive work."--Tom Franck, New York University


"An important contribution...."--American Journal of International Law


"Its essential contribution is the analysis of nearly fifty years of practice, now available to both academics and practitioners under one cover....A vertiable researcher's dream....This book is on the "must list" for any serious researcher who seeks ready access to historical and contemporary applications of the UN charter."--ASIL United Nations Decade Newsletter


"The treatment of the subjects covered is both descriptive and analytical. Bruno Simma and his colleagues deserve the gratitude of diplomats, international lawyers, legal advisers in the government, scholars and many others who are potential readers of the present volume. No law library can afford to do without this work of immense enduring value."--Law Books in Review
