This collection of 29 essays by Shabtai Rosenne commences with a reproduction of his monograph ""The Time Factor in the Jurisdiction of the International Court"", first published in 1960. A postscript has been added drawing attention to significant developments since.

The remaining essays are divided into five parts, as follows: The International Court of Justice and International Litigation; The Law of Treaties and the Sources of Law; The Law of the Sea; Jewish and Israeli Matters; and ""In Memoriam"".

Some of these essays, notably those on Jewish and Israeli matters, were originally written in Hebrew and have been especially translated for this volume. All the materials have been updated since their original publication.
