1 Legality of the Use by a State of Nuclear Weapons in Armed Conflict, 1996 ICJ Rep. 66 (July 8) (response to request of World Health Organization) [hereinafter WHO Advisory Opinion]; Legality of the Threat or Use of Nuclear Weapons, 1996 ICJ Rep. 226 (July 8) (response to request of UN General Assembly) [hereinafter General Assembly Advisory Opinion]. These advisory opinions, as well as all filings in the two cases, are available online at the ICJ Web site, <http://www.icj-cij.org>.

2 As was to be expected, the opinions have generated a spate of articles, as well as at least four other books: John Burroughs, The Legality of Threat or Use of Nuclear Weapons: A Guide to the Historic Opinion of the International Court of Justice (1997); The Case Against the Bomb (Roger S. Clark & Madeleine Sann eds., 1996); Charles J., Moxley Jr., Nuclear Weapons and International Law in the Post Cold War World (2000); Nuclear Weapons Are Illegal (Ann Ginger ed., 1998). The last book is the only one available that contains the complete texts of the WHO Advisory Opinion and of all 14 declarations and separate and dissenting opinions.
