This book addresses the issue of the legality of the use of nuclear weapons under international law. It includes forwarding remarks by Robert S. McNamara, David W. Leebron, and Kosta Tsipis. Moxley analyzes the question in light of the July 1996 advisory opinion issued by the International Court of Justice, the law as articulated by the United States, and generally recognized facts as to the characteristics and effects of nuclear weapons. He concludes that the use of nuclear weapons is per se unlawful under the rules of international law and facts recognized by the United States. Nuclear Weapons and International Law in the Post Cold War World is an unprecedented exploration of the application of the necessity, proportionality and discrimination of principles of international law to nuclear weapons.

Charles Moxley has given us an incredibly thorough study of international law, its nature, its strengths, its weaknesses, and the need to find adequate ways to make it enforceable if the proliferation and use of nuclear weapons and consequent disaster are to be avoided. (Alan Cranson )
Professor Moxley's book is a broad-ranging treatment of a complex subject that will contribute to the debate. The combination of international law, nuclear weapons policy, and technical analysis makes interesting reading. (Cyrus Vance )
It is 'must' reading for anyone specializing or generally interested in use of force issues in International Law. (American Society Of International Law )
Charles Moxley's thesis that nuclear weapons violate international law may be this century's most important advance towards a peaceable world order. His book should make you worry, make you think and above all, impel you to make his case against nuclear weapons your case. (Jerome J. Shestack )
