Overview

Each day the media reports the rapid changes occurring around the world which have a significance for international law. The struggle for self-determination in the USSR and elsewhere, the attempts to control terrorism, the role of the United Nations, the cries for human rights, and the urgent need to protect the environment are all matters addressed by international law.

However, too often the treaties, the resolutions, the statements, the cases and the other materials concerning these matters are not readily available to students of international law. Many are in United Nations documents, in national journals or in foreign government publications. As there is an increasing interdependence of the international community, it is important for this material to be easily accessible.

This book is a complete collection of cases and materials and contains the material students generally need, covering both the well-established and the developing international law.
