Eckart Klein, German Yearbook of International Law The disposition of the authors and the choice of the contributors, many of them likewise experienced as academics and practitioners, are convincing. All chapters are well composed and focused, illustrating the relevant problems, discussing possible solutions and obstacles, and concluding with concise summarizing observations, and some, not too many, suggestions for Further Reading... Indeed Reading each chapter was a joy that I hope will be shared by many readers.
