Editorial Reviews


The Oxford Guide to Treaties is an impressive work. It will beyond doubt constitute an essential point of reference for scholars, practitioners and students seeking expert guidance on issues relating to the law of treaties. Maria Xiouri, International Community Law Review The Oxford Guide to Treaties brings clarity to a topic of central importance to policymakers, practicing attorneys, and a wide range of academics. Comprehensive in its scope, and equally valuable both to those coming to treaties for the first time and to those who have spent many years poring over texts, the Oxford Guide provides the reader with detailed explanations of the key rules and issues that mark contemporary international treaty law and practice. With contributions from leading scholars and practitioners, and expertly edited, the Oxford Guide will serve as the authoritative reference volume in this field for years to come. ASIL Award Citation The Oxford Guide to Treaties fills some important voids ... The Guide forms an excellent starting point for further research on such grand topics as interpretation, while some chapters on the narrower issues are so complete that the practitioner will find all she needs ... useful point of (first) reference for both practitioners and academics. Tim Staal, European Journal of International Law Hollis' book marks a refreshing and welcome change of pace and focus ... The volume is and will long remain an essential reference for any one working with treaties either in a practical or academic way. Mark Weston Janis, NILR
