Abstract:Despite the technical prowess of both the editors and the contributors to this unique and comprehensive commentary on the Statute of the ICJ, a book of this nature cannot be all things to all people. The practitioner will miss a closer reading of the Court's jurisprudence and a more exhaustive bibliography; the theoretician will lament the lack of theoretical foundations for many of the dogmatic arguments put forward. But this volume is as good as they come, both in terms of the medium and format chosen. The commentary fulfils most of the demands made of it by practitioners and scholars alike.
