For junior/senior-level courses in International Law in departments of government or political science.

Designed specifically for students in political science-rather than for law students contemplating practice in international courts-this comprehensive introduction to international law emphasizes the normative theory of international law and its place in contemporary world politics. Using a combination of theory supplemented by case law, it describes the importance of international law from the perspective of the rights of states, reciprocity among governments, and collaborative efforts to achieve stability and peace. And, by interweaving traditional subjects (e.g., statehood and sovereignty) with discussions of contemporary topics (e.g., human rights and the law of the sea), it reveals the emerging transition to a new style of international politics-an interdependent international system based on law and organization.
