Principles of Public International Law Summary

Principles of Public International Law by Ian Brownlie

The sixth edition of Ian Brownlie's comprehensive and authoritative textbook has been thoroughly revised and updated to take into account all changes in the field of public international law since 1998. A new chapter on the use of force has been added, along with further discussion of the environment. Its clarity, excellent structure, detailed referencing and depth and maturity of analysis make it the ideal companion for students, scholars and practitioners. Principles of Public International Law was the first textbook to cover the important subject of human rights and to place the subject in relation to general international law. It continues to be one of the leading textbooks on public international law.
