This classic red volume is a one-of-a-kind reference tool that brings together both terminology and pertinent descriptive information on international law. This book is also available online as an e-reference on the Oxford University Press Digital Reference Shelf. Now in its third edition, The Parry and Grant Encyclopaedic Dictionary of International Law is completely updated and expanded to include increased coverage in growing areas of international law including diplomatic law, criminal law, human rights, and more. Over 2,500 entries (an over 20% increase in content over the previous edition) provides the reader with copious references for further research including cases, treaties, journal articles, and websites.
