The fourth edition of Public International Law provides a very readable, lively, detailed and easily understood introduction to the fundamental principles and structures of international law without compromising on analysis and depth of coverage.
Whilst the traditional topics of public international law are central to this book, new developments including the impact of Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia, the fight against terrorism, the implications of cases currently pending before the International Court of Justice on State immunity and the exercise of universal jurisdiction by States are also detailed. In addition, new actors on the international stage such as non-governmental organisations, multinational corporations and terrorist groups, are identified, examined and commented upon.
The entire stance of the book allows the reader to appreciate the historic perspective and the evolving nature of public international law. This fourth edition includes an enhanced layout and student-friendly features such as advice on further reading, highlighted cases, aides-memoire chapter outlines and summaries.

Alina Kaczorowska is Professor of International and EU Law at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados. She is also the author of the Routledge textbook, EU Law.Review:
"In the increasingly specialised and fragmented field of public international law, general texts need to provide a coherent and relatively comprehensive, but at the same time accessible, overview of the international legal system. Alina Kaczorowska's new edition succeeds admirably in doing this. It has thoroughness and depth, but at the same time is very clear and easy to read. It is likely to prove a very helpful resource for both beginners and the more experienced working with international law."
Gerard Conway, Brunel Law School
"Public International Law is a very readable and user-friendly textbook. Alina Kaczorowska makes good use of current affairs to make and illustrate points."
Gino Naldi, Norwich Law School, University of East Anglia
