A comprehensive treatment of the law of treaties written from the point of view of a practitioner of 35 years experience: the first book of its kind. Aust provides a wealth of examples of the real problems experienced in making and using treaties day by day, not just when a treaty is the subject of a court case. As such it is invaluable to the practitioner. Aust aims to supply the reader with a full and rounded understanding of all aspects of treaties. He avoids technical language as far as possible, making his work accessible to non-lawyers.

Although not primarily an academic work, there is plenty to interest and inform law students and teachers (it has established itself as a course book), as well as those specialising in political science, international relations or diplomacy.
