"Any international law researcher should find this book as a useful guide. . . . Full attention is paid to the practice of developing countries and the writings of their publicists, especially those from Latin America. . . . for the reader who reads deeply the book provides insights into the changing structure of international law and the increasing level of interdependence among states. . . . the book would be of immense value to lawyers, students of international law -- and to a less extent comparative law -- and political scientists. The book's great asset is that it is clearly written and easily readable." -- Anselm Francis
