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 sixth edition has now been completely revised and updated to take account of many new developments. A 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 original in several respects. The author is particularly concerned with the relationship between international law and international politics, and he 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.
