Numerous cross-references in bold lead the reader to appropriate entries, and the abundant references to primary sources, mostly treaties and court cases, enable the reader to locate the materials needed for research. The selective bibliography includes books, research aids, textbooks, and casebooks, as well as recent books on special international law topics.This Dictionary is a useful addition to both public and academic libraries, including, in particular, libraries of law schools. The format of the book allows it to be used as a reference guide for legal professionals, scholars inter
