About the Authors
  • Since 1947, Stephen M. Schwebel has written some 200 articles and book reviews on topics of international law, international arbitration and international relations. This volume brings together thirty-two of the legal articles and commentaries written since the first volume of his essays was published in 1994. The essays analyze contentious issues of international arbitration and international law such as the place of preparatory work in interpreting treaties, the role of a judge of the nationality of a party to a case sitting in judgment in the International Court of Justice, and the meaning of the term 'investment' in ICSID jurisprudence. Together with his unofficial writings, his judicial opinions are catalogued in the list of publications with which this volume concludes.

    • Essays on contentious questions of international arbitration will appeal to international arbitrators and counsel
    • Students of and advocates before the International Court of Justice will benefit from the essays appraising the performance of the International Court of Justice
    • Essays exploring the role of a judge of the nationality of a party in the International Court of Justice will appeal to students of and parties' counsel before the International Court of Justice
