Brownlie's analysis and assessment should certainly promote tighter and better drafting, while encouraging, among practical and practicing lawyers, clearer thinking about claims and rights, wrongs and reparation, and the sheer mechanics of state responsibility.-Guy S. Goodwin-Gill in The American Journal of International Law. "The author's crisp style renders this a remarkably handy volume considering its wealth of information and its extensive provision of original materials."-Gunther F. Handl in International Lawyer. An invaluable source for all those involved in the teaching or practice of international law, this authoritative study provides a detailed analysis of the substantive principles of state responsibility.
