The Canadian Yearbook of International Law, Vol. 40, 2002

Edited by Don M. McRae
UBC Press

Since its advent in 1961, The Canadian Yearbook of International Law has had three main objectives: to make available to Canadians and the international community a systematic presentation of the best Canadian thought on problems of international law; to promote the development of Canadian research on international law; and to make available documents and commentaries that reveal the practice of Canadian institutions in matters of international law. UBC Press is honoured to have been involved with this venerable project, and is proud to celebrate the publication of its fortieth volume this year.

Issued annually under the auspices of the Canadian Branch of the International Law Association (Canadian Society of International Law) and the Canadian Council on International Law, the Yearbook contains articles of lasting significance in the field of international legal studies; a notes and comments section; a digest of international economic law; a section on current Canadian practice in international law; a digest of important Canadian cases in the fields of public international law, private international law, and conflict of laws; a list of recent Canadian treaties; and book reviews.
