Burns H. Weston, Richard B. Lillich, David J. Bederman
Extending the scholarship and analysis of their acclaimed 1975 work, Weston and Lillich (with the addition of David Bederman to their team) bring the log of international claims up to 1995. This volume provides authoritative translations and annotations of lump sum agreements concluded between 1975 and 1995 (as well as hitherto unavailable agreements concluded before 1975). Detailed commentary includes analysis of such issues as eligible claimants, substantive bases of claims, and standards of compensation under the agreements. The authors leave no doubt of the continued importance of lump sum agreements to international claims practice and the dynamic law of state responsibility.
