Abstract

An account of the life and achievements of Professor Wang Tieya is a chronicle of both an individual and his country. The life of this remarkable figure in international law is closely intertwined with the tumultuous events which have, in the space of this century, transformed China from a dynastic colony into an independent republic and a major world power. That transformation has not been an easy one; and the turmoils of war, civil uprising, and devastating internal purges which marked the growth and development of his country have also marked the life of Professor Wang. This book is dedicated with admiration, esteem, and affectionate good wishes to Professor Wang on the occasion of his eightieth birthday. The more than fifty chapters which the book contains, constitute an impressive and fascinating survey of international law in the last decade of the twentieth century.
