Abstract

In his introduction to the Special Feature in the Fall 1984 issue of the Yale Journal of International Law, Professor Reisman proclaimed the study of "incidents" as a "new genre in the study of international law."' Although Reisman's article is challenging, innovative, and eminently readable-as one would expect from his pen-one must nevertheless question whether the incident methodology is truly a new genre, as he claims, or whether this belief is simply a delusion which distracts us from the more serious problems of studying international law.
