This volume is based on the theme that justice cannot be confined within limitations of space, time or academic discipline, a theme which Judge Christopher Weeramantry has consistently applied in the writings collected here. The text argues that justice breaks out beyond the bounds of particular cultural traditions and territorial boundaries. It trancends generational barriers and imposes on every generation duties towards those who are to follow. It reaches beyond the bounds of the discipline of law and fertilizes the interface area between law and other disciplines.;This is the first volume of several which will cover Judge Weeramantry's contribution to legal literature. The remianing volumes will contain essays on: justice in a global context; justice in the age of technology; and the votaries of justice.
