"What makes the book exceptional is the fact that the authors of each chapter present political and theoretical issues from both traditional and critical perspectives, providing valuable insight for a public interested in each field of international law."

"What the Cambridge Companion will do is to introduce the reader to international law's underlying contradictions, to its regressive tendencies, and to its liberating potential. International law, like all law, is a tool - and as a "science of the superstructure" it is a tool used mainly to conserve and perpetuate the status quo; the Cambridge Companion comes at it from a decidedly critical (read: progressive) bend, exposes its biases, but also demonstrates how "small change" may realise its power to liberate and protect."
