Overview

Cases and Materials on International Law is a topical and engaging companion for study; placing international law directly in the context of contemporary debate. It offers broad coverage of international law, and is suitable for use alongside a range of course structures and teaching styles. The book contains the essential cases and materials that students need in order to understand and analyze the international legal order, providing notes on selected extracts to explain the complexities of the law to students. These are from a full range of international sources.

The fifth edition includes further discussion of topical areas such as international criminal law, featuring a new chapter focusing explicitly on this subject. It also provides expanded coverage of topical areas including the use of force in Iraq and the role of international organizations.
