This text offers an original and scholarly introduction to a number of key topics which lie at the heart of modern international law.

Based upon the revised text of her Hague Academy lectures, Professor Higgins presents an original and thought-provoking study of the nature and processes of international law, and reveals the complex relationship between legal norms and the policy objectives which lie at the heart of this subject.
