Something different and refreshing

Reading this book is like a breeze of fresh air in the worl of the literature on international law, which is mostly just listed rules and principles. The author has come up with a truly original and enjoyable style, which is much more fluent and lets the reader feel him/herself more as a person, who does know something about international law. It is good to see that those who sit on the World Court, really do know the subject and can handle it just as skilfully as the clowns handle their stuff at circus.

She successfully writes for two audiences; neophytes of international law, as well as for experienced, lifelong students of the subject. It is rare that an author can present such an accurate and fulfilling work on as many levels as she. Read this book and understand why she sits on the World Court.
