In the past couple of years, we have regularly reported on the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law, the leading reference work in international law which is being prepared under the general editorship of Professor Rüdiger Wolfrum of the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg, Germany. The Max Planck Encyclopedia has been available for some time in an online edition, but Oxford University Press now announced that the print edition will be coming out on 23rd February 2012. Also, there is a pre-publication offer in place until the end of January 2012 – more details here: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199291687.do
I can only recommend this great reference work to everybody who has the financial means to obtain it. And if one cannot afford it personally, there is always the opportunity of asking the university library to get it. It is definantely worth it!
Thanks to John Louth of OUP for drawing my attention to this.
