A successor to the League of Nation's Permanent Court ofInternational Justice, the International Court of Justicewas established in 1946 by the United Nations. Writtenduring its early years, this incisive study outlines how thecourt functioned as an "instrument for the maintenance ofinternational peace and security" and how it may function inthe future. Though skeptical that the court would be apowerful institution, Lissitzyn believed its rulings wouldhave a modest but notable effect on the development ofinternational law.
