Synopsis:

Since the second edition of this commentary on the Charter of the United Nations was published, the text of the Charter may not have changed but the world has. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have had a lasting impact on international law and the Commentary has been fully updated to take their impact into account. The new edition has been completely revised and features a completely new chapter on UN reform, analyzing the effect of reforms which have already been implemented and examining why other proposals for reform have failed. It will assess how these proposals could be improved, with a particular focus on the Security Council. This new edition also includes coverage of the creation of the Human Rights Council and the impact of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine.

This is the authoritative, article-by-article account of the legislative history, interpretation, and practical application of each and every Charter provision. Written by a team of distinguished scholars and practitioners, this book combines academic research with the insights of practice, and is an indispensable work of reference for all those interested in the UN.The Commentary will be crucial in providing new directions for the development of international law and the United Nations in the twenty-first century.

Review:

Review from previous edition The project Simma has put together is excellent and will be very useful ... Simma has gathered virtually all of the leading experts and ... this will be a definitive work. ( Tom Franck, Professor of International Law, New York University)

The book may be recommended as an important source of information on the interpretation and application of the UN Charter over years. Simma and his colleagues should be praised for their coherent presentation of the Commentary. ( Netherlands International Law Review)

This massive volume will be familiar to some readers in its earlier German version, first published in 1991. It now appears in an excellent English translation which does full justice to the quality of the scholarship of some 60 German-speaking international lawyers...a book whose encyclopaedic quality will make it a standard reference work on what remains for international lawyers probably the most important treaty of the twentieth century...a series of essays that are informative and authoritative and often range well beyond the confines of the Charter itself...the whole work has clearly benefited from very high editorial standards. It deserves a wide readership and will prove an essential text for any international law library. ( International and Comparative Law Quarterly)

...remarkably accessible. The reader is guided through the legislative history, general meaning and specific problems. This combination of detail and clarity combine to produce an invaluable work of reference for practitioners and a fascinating study for any academic. ( Law Quarterly Review)
