In the first truly new international law text in years, Christopher C. Joyner offers a critical assessment of international legal rules in the early st century as they are applied by governments to the real world. Looking at concepts and principles, processes, and critical problems, Joyner steers clear of an old-time case method approach, preferring to treat issues thematically. He shows the challenges of international law in terms of peace, security, human rights, the environment, and economic justice. Particular features of the book include engaging vignettes, clearly defined key terms, and special coverage of emerging topics including common spaces international criminal law rules, norms, and regimes and trade relations and commercial exchange. Through it all, Joyner maintains an intent focus on the role of the individual in the evolving international legal order.
