Understanding the International Institutions in The Haag Mar 30, 2008
The Hague: Legal Capital of the World captures a readers head and heart. The book's five hundred and sixty nine pages are as rich in content as the color of its hard glossy cover. Each chapter, respectively introduced with the institution's unique international symbol, shares a two page spread with institution contact information, and elegantly captures the essence of each building through a black and white photograph, as if one is doorstep, awaiting their personal guided tour.
Diplomats, scholars, and students, as well as residents of The Hague, will experience a fruitful feeling of time spent between the pages of this volume. With forwards by the Netherlands' Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Mayor of the City of The Hague, and the former United Nations Legal Counsel, the reader gains perspective on this book's valuable contents which includes treaties, statutes, articles, and more. Within such a vast and dense field, this volume highlights relevant institutional information which is succinctly organized and easy on the eyes. The fluidity and organization of this book clearly represents the contributions of the experts behind the making, and unveils why The Hague, is in fact, "the legal capital of the world". -Lisa Ferrouge
Very informative Mar 7, 2008
This book is a very organized and well-planned read. Sometimes author's take certain facts for granted but this book was very careful to alway mention the basics along side of the details. I loved it. Also, the footnotes were an added bonus. Professor Van Krieken is very intelligent and still down to earth and this shows in the text. If you need to know anything about international law, history of, the future policies..... you will be able to get it here. Chelsea Fullilove
