Item description for International Water Law Selected Writings of Professor Charles B. Bourne (International and National Water Law and Policy Series, Vol 1) by Patricia Wouters...
`[When] great issues were coming to the fore. . .that would determine the future of the mighty Columbia River and the international water relations of those two neighbors, who stand astride most of the North American Continent, Canada and the United States. . .Charles Bourne established himself as a preeminent figure in the developing stages of the law.' (from the Biographical Note by Professor Albert E. Utton). One of the drafters of the ILA Helsinki Rules, Professor Charles Bourne is an authority in the field of international water law. He has edited and written widely in respected journals and has served on the noted committees of recognized scholars that have helped shape and interpret the state of the law. This collection compiles a selection of Professor Bourne s definitive articles with a forward by the editor surveying recent developments in the field and an introduction by Professor Lucius Caflisch (Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva). Its comprehensive coverage and Professor Bourne s own stature in the law of international water systems make this essential reading for all specialists and students involved with water, and a tribute to a foremost expert in the field. `. . .the present volume is a must for anyone seriously interested in the law of international waterways. It evidences a constant scholarly preoccupation with almost all aspects of that law. Above all, it reflects standards of conciseness, clarity, elegance and scholarship which rightly are the envy of Professor Bourne's colleagues.' (From the Preface by Professor Lucius Caflisch).
