The second edition of International Law reflects the breadth and diversity of contemporary public international law. It draws on the knowledge and expertise of a broad range of contributors actively involved in the current teaching and practice of the discipline. These authoritative and stimulating contributions present the essential elements of the international legal system in a clear and accessible fashion and address key questions that challenge many of the assumptions upon which that system is founded.
Now revised and updated to include coverage of developments in the subject since publication of the first edition in 2003, International Law is an invaluable resource for students of all levels following courses in international law, politics, or international relations as part of their degree programme, whilst also providing a key source of reference for practitioners and academics alike.
