"With national and international boundaries constantly changing and trade increasingly being conducted on an international scale, international law is a key factor in negotiations, decision making and the delineation of parameters worldwide." "Since the publication of the last edition, international law has achieved even more global impact. These changes have occurred in a variety of areas and all are documented and clarified in this fully revised edition." This new edition has been comprehensively updated and expanded to take into account these major recent changes in international law. Cases & Materials on International Law offers the reader a clear and accessible explanation of what is deemed an often complex topical subject. Cases, articles and author comments clarify theoretical points and provide the basic tools for a course in international law.
