A volume in the series Pennsylvania Studies in Human Rights

"Excellent."—Cambridge Law Journal
"This is the definitive history of a nongovernmental organization based in Geneva and well known to specialists on human rights."—Choice

"For historical detail, systematic analysis, and practical prescriptions for effective NGO action, Howard Tolley, Jr. has set a high standard in a much needed field of scholarly work. The research invested in this volume yields a workmanlike study which shows considerable insight into the origins and activities of an influential and elite agglomeration of lawyers, judges, and law professors in the post-World War II period."—Human Rights Quarterly

"An in-depth study of one of the most significant nongovernmental organizations concerning itself with human rights. . . . The great strength of this book is its comprehensive description of the work of the ICJ from its inception."—Journal of Law and Society

Since its founding in 1952, the International Commission of Jurists has inspired the international human rights movement with persistent demands that governments obey the rule of law.
