Akehurst's Modern Introduction to International Law Reviews

"Professor Malanczuk has written a new edition of Michael Akehurst's textbook which maintains its high traditions of clarity, precision and coherence. The new edition, more widely-detailed and widely-referenced, will appeal to a wider audience than its predecessor, whilst still satisfying the needs of those seeking an accessible introduction to international law, whether lawyers or not."
-Colin Warbrick, University of Durham
