Recent developments, including the Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change and Israeli Wall case warrant a fresh look at contemporary principles and practices of international law. This scholarly and analytical work provides a clear and balanced account of the emerging rules of both custom and treaty law. It focuses upon primary sources as well as extracts and summaries of the major treaties, the practices of states and global organisations, and the leading decisions of international tribunals.

The text both emphasises the traditional framework of international law (sources, treaties, jurisdiction, personality, territory, law of the sea, state responsibility and sovereign immunity) and extends it by analysis of the emerging principles of international environmental law, human rights and the rules of the World Trade Organisation.
