First published in 1970, A Modern Introduction to International Law rapidly established itself as the most widely used and successful textbook in its field. This new edition is now completely revised and updated to take account of many new developments. It is ideal for students of international politics, for whom the topics covered on a legal syllabus have been carefully adapted. Akehurst's Modern Introduction to International Law covers a variety of topics, from diplomatic immunity to human rights, and from recognition of government to war crimes. The book is particularly concerned with the relationship between international law and international politics, and it devotes special attention to such controversial topics as self-determination and the expropriation of foreign-owned property where the conflicting interests and attitudes of different states are most apparent.
