Overview

The fourth edition of Malcolm Shaw's bestselling textbook in international law represents a major revision of its predecessor. Alongside substantial new chapters dealing with human rights and the United Nations, Professor Shaw has incorporated new material on international environmental law, state succession, recognition, the settlement of disputes by peaceful means and international institutions. Above all the book remains a comprehensive and highly readable introduction to international law.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Malcolm Shaw's International Law has been an indispensable resource for students of international law since its first publication in 1977. It gives an accurate and well-balanced account of the development and current state of the law. In light of recent developments, the new chapters on international criminal law and the International Court of Justice are welcome. I warmly recommend Shaw to anyone studying international law at undergraduate or graduate level.' James Crawford, The Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge

'When I was teaching Shaw's International Law was my textbook of choice for the students. I continue today to find this book very useful and well organized. It is good news that a Sixth Edition guarantees that it remains thoroughly contemporary, with new chapters added and everything updated.' Dame Rosalyn Higgins, President of the International Court of Justice

'Shaw's treatise has been praised as being particularly well suited for 'novice' students of the field … it is surprisingly user-friendly.' American Journal of International Law

'An outstanding treatise which I use regularly in the course of my work at the Court. It excels in precision, comprehensiveness and topicality. On many issues, like questions of territory, it has no equal in any language. And last but not least, it reads well.' Bruno Simma, Judge, International Court of Justice
