 Reviews:

"The honor paid to Sir Robert Jennings, former Whewell Professor at Cambridge, lately judge and most recently president of the Court, is well-deserved. And there are enough fine essays in the book, on a variety of topics, to make it altogether suitable for a university or office library." International Journal on World Peace

"As a comprehensive, scholarly reflection on the International Court of Justice, Fifty Years of the International Court of Justice excels." Dana M. Caudle, Journal of Government Information
