Abstract

The book under review is a liber amicorum for Professor de Waart, who is an outstanding human rights activist and academic. His range of interests is very wide indeed. Although human rights issues constitute the main core of his activities and research, Professor de Waart's contribution to other fields of international law is very significant, having encompassed international economic law, peace, security and international law and development and settlement of international disputes. This book in his honour is a collection of essays which reflect the areas if international law in which he was particularly engaged. The book is divided into six parts: international economic law and de- velopment (Part I); human rights (Part II); international criminal jurisdiction (Part III); the United Nations and peace and security (Part IV); the protection of cultural property, human genetics and the environment (Part V); interna- tional dispute settlement (Part VI). It consists of twenty eight essays. It is impossible to discuss each of these essays individually in this review. In general, however, it may be remarked that the submissions strike a very good balance between the legal and the political approaches to the issues which they cover. Some of the essays are focused
