Malcolm Shaw's engaging and authoritative International Law has become the definitive textbook for instructors and students alike, in this increasingly popular field of academic study. The hallmark writing style provides a stimulating account, motivating students to explore the subject more fully, while maintaining detail and academic rigour. The analysis integrated in the textbook challenges students to develop critical thinking skills.

The sixth edition is comprehensively updated throughout and is carefully constructed to reflect current teaching trends and course coverage. The International Court of Justice is now examined in a separate dedicated chapter and there is a new chapter on international criminal law. The detailed references and reliable, consistent commentary which distinguished previous editions remain, making this essential reading for all students of international law whether they be at undergraduate level, postgraduate level or professional lawyers.

  • The definitive account of international law which provides an authoritative and comprehensive survey of the subject
  • Detailed references throughout encourage further reading on the part of the student at either an undergraduate or postgraduate level
  • High level of analysis combined with stimulating and engaging writing style: challenges students to approach the text critically and develop analytical skills without overwhelming them
