Judge Stephen M. Schwebel has been a highly-respected member of the International Court of Justice since 1981. This volume brings together thirty-six of his legal articles and commentaries of continuing interest. He examines the performance and capacity of the International Court of Justice; aspects of international arbitration; problems of the United Nations; questions of international contracts and taking foreign property interests; and the development of international law, and in particular the central problem of the unlawful use of force.
