The centrality of treaties to the international legal system requires little emphasis. Not only is the treaty a source of law that the International Court of Justice is bound to apply when resolving international disputes, but it is also the medium through which the vast preponderance of international legal intercourse is now conducted. The essays contained in this informative volume disclose a wide variety of opinion on a broad range of issues concerning the conclusion, application and termination of treaties.
