The Supremacy of the State in International Law

James Biser WhiskerProfessor, West Virginia University, USA

ISBN13: 9780773468481
Publisher: The Edwin Mellen Press Ltd
Format: Hardback
Price: £69.95

The act of state doctrine is one of the most ancient and revered of all concepts in the fields of international law and international relations. It is vitally interconnected with the doctrines of absolute sovereign and sovereign immunity. A state is legally supreme within its own boundaries and its sovereign is wholly immune to the judgments of other nations. If a state does not possess final and complete power over its own territory and citizens it is a dependency, a colony, or an occupied area.
