The second edition of this authoritative and analytical work provides a clear and balanced account of the traditional framework and emerging rules of custom and treaty law. The inclusion and discussion of a range of primary sources provides an understanding of the foundations and practical implementation of international law as an integrated regime.

In addition to a comprehensive coverage of essential areas such as sources, treaties, jurisdiction, personality, territory, law of the sea, state responsibility and sovereign immunity, more specialised topics are included, such as international environmental law, human rights and the rules of the World Trade Organization.

Summaries and extracts from major treaties and leading decisions of important tribunals as well as the practices of states and global organisations support a deeper understanding of each topic.

Fully revised and updated, the text reflects recent developments affecting the principles and practices in contemporary international law. Chapter order is restructured, accommodating increased focus on international criminal law and human rights.
