Summary:
"This book's epigraph, written by Manley O. Hudson, dates back to 1947. Today, more than seven decades later, Hudson's optimistic remarks about Switzerland's expected compliance with international law leave us wondering how the practice of the Swiss authorities has evolved. Has Switzerland indeed been 'chart[ing] her course with meticulous regard for her obligations under international law"-- Provided by publisher.
