LONDON NUCLEAR WARFARE TRIBUNAL Evidence, Commentary, and Judgment

Evidence, Commentary, and Judgment

This book was originally published in 1989 by the Alva and Gunnar Myrdal Foundation in conjunction with Swedish Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms (ISBN 91-87396-09-2).

The original edition was not printed in large numbers, so soon it became a scarce item. Many lawyers, scholars and others have found it to be a very useful compact summary of the legal issues related to nuclear weapons. Therefore it has been decided to re-issue the whole text, in this web format.

The original print edition has a date of July 1989. There were some late corrections that did not make the print version. Re-issue of the book provides an opportunity to incorporate those minor changes and corrections. Therefore this edition represents the manuscript as of September 1989.

POSTSCRIPT: The approach taken in this book formed part of the basis, directly or indirectly, of the Advisory Opinion of the World Court in 1996.
