Book description

The Routledge Handbook of International Law provides a definitive global survey of the interaction of international politics and international law. Each chapter is written by a leading expert and provides a state of the art overview of the most significant areas within the field.

This highly topical collection of specially commissioned papers from both established authorities and rising stars is split into four key sections:

  • The Nature of International Law including the interaction between the disciplines of International Law and International Relations

  • The Evolution of International Law progressing from the ancient world to present day.

  • Law and Power in International Society discussing topical issues such as the war in Iraq and the international criminal court

  • Key Issues in International Law including international refugee law, indigenous rights, intellectual property, trade and the challenges presented by "new terrorism".

A comprehensive survey of the state of the discipline, The Routledge Handbook of International Law is an essential work of reference for scholars and practitioners of international Law.
