Item description for Collected Writings of Sir Robert Jennings by R. Jennings...
Kluwer Law International is proud to announce the publication of the Collected Writings of Sir Robert Jennings. In his masterly Foreword, Professor Georges Abi-Saab emphasises Jennings's `rare quality ... there is no belabouring of the obvious, no over-elaboration of details which the reader can work out for himself.' No international law library, institutional or private, should be without this fascinating volume. These beautifully written texts, from the hand of a universally appreciated scholar, Professor and Judge, provide the reader with `a fertile and coherent vision of the whole field of international law; of its state or structure revisited at intervals; as well as of its evolution, whether via the `sources', which are themselves evolving, or through the exercise of the judicial function, which is also undergoing a significant transformation. A vision that also sheds light on the fact that much of the resulting substantive changes in international law are brought about in the ambit or content of the functional or spatial jurisdiction of the state or the other subjects of international law which are progressively becoming more significant. The reader is thus invited on an exciting intellectual journey into the life of international law during the last crucial five or six decades, as chronicled by one of the most perceptive exponents of [the] discipline.'
