Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS I.I. Lukashuk Funktsionirovanie mezhdunarodnogo prava, Moscow, "Nauka", 1992, pp. 223. Dr. Lukashuk is a leading specialist on international law at the Institute of State and Law in Moscow. His writings afford a master tour of the landmarks of the Soviet Union's international law repertory and, now, a handy guide to the emerging contours of Russia's practices here. The present study of the "operational code" of the international law canon is a crowning achievement in a long and productive academic career. Written with great skill and erudition, the monograph taps sources in ten languages and weaves an impressive tapestry of cross-disciplinary analysis of the legal and political factors that determine the mode of functioning of the modem international law system. Our author's approach has always distinguished itself from the genre of work by most of his fellow scholars through efforts to reach outside the narrow confines of legal investigation and also experiment with social science techniques and reliance on a comparativist frame of reference to draw a sweeping tableau of the international law landscape instead of just a series of snapshots of the local scenery.
