Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One of the few texts to address Islam and international law…To my mind there is no undergraduate textbook on the present market that does as comprehensive and inclusive study of economics in such a confined space from a legal perspective than this undergraduate textbook." Robert Bledsoe, University of Central Florida

"International Law is thorough, challenging, and accessible, all key ingredients for a successful semester…This text prepares students for further studies in international law in a way that other textbooks fail to achieve." Tina Mueller, University of Nebraska

"Slomanson …meet(s) the demand for more detail and depth." Wesley Millner, University of Evansville

This textbook on international law outlines fundamental concepts like extraterritorial jurisdiction and sovereignty, then details the existing system of treaties, diplomacy, arbitration, and adjudication. The book describes the roles of states, organizations, individuals and corporations, and brings particular attention to current controversies surrounding violence, human rights, the environment, and economic globalization. Slomanson teaches at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
