This book sets out in a single volume the basic principles of public international law. It commences with an examination of the general principles,before proceeding to consider each of the principal subject areas. O'Brien examines not only the history and present status of public international law, but also considers the economic, social and cultural factors that have influenced the development of the subject.

Each chapter concludes with an evaluation of relevant judgments of international courts and tribunals. As one of the most comprehensive books available, International Law will appeal to students of international law and the related discipline of international relations, as well as those following courses in political science. As an extensive reference work it will be an essential addition to the libraries of all those practically engaged in the field.
