9780198259015: Fairness in International Law and Institutions

This new book by one of the most distinguished scholars of his generation offers a compelling view of modern international law. Based upon his Hague Academy lectures, the author establishes a framework through which the legal reasoning and theories which inform modern international law can be understood by students seeking an introduction to this large and complex area of law. He offers a critical analysis of the prescriptive norms and institutions of modern international law and argues that they have the capacity to advance, in practice, the abstract social values shared by the community of States and persons.

About the Author:

Thomas M. Franck is the Murry and Ida Becker Professor of Law and Director of the Center for International Studies at the New York University School of Law.


"This thorough, scholarly treatise is bound to become a standard....Highly recommended for graduate students and faculty."--Choice

"[The author] has emerged in the 1990s as the most influential specialist in international law currently at work in the United States...It is his recent writing that has seemed to make the difference in his scholarly stature. ...the best published work in any language on international law. What Franck has done brilliantly in this period is to write with authority and conceptual imagination about topics of great significance and interest but not effectively touched on by others for a long time...gives us both a coherent and theoretically grounded perspective on fairness and a substantive look at its relevance for a wide range of international concerns...A pathbreaking book on the issue of fairness."--American Political Science Review

"The present work is of considerable importance. The committee of the American Society of International Law on "Annual Awards" has awarded a certificate of merit to this book for "creative scholarship". Thomas Franck has made a notable contribution to the field of international law by his fresh approach to the issues of a just world order."--Law Books in Review
