Handbook of International Law

Portada
Cambridge University Press, 2005 M10 27
A concise account of international law by an experienced practitioner, this book explains how states and international organisations, especially the United Nations, make and use international law. The nature of international law and its fundamental concepts and principles are described. The difference and relationship between various areas of international law which are often misunderstood (such as diplomatic and state immunity, and human rights and international humanitarian law) are clearly explained. The essence of new specialist areas of international law, relating to the environment, human rights and terrorism are discussed. Aust's clear and accessible style makes the subject understandable to non-international lawyers, non-lawyers and students. Abundant references are provided to sources and other materials, including authoritative and useful websites.

Crítica de los usuarios - Marcar como inadecuado

This book is thoroughly inadequate and cursory in helping people learn about international law. It offers no in-depth description of any important cases by the International Court of Justice or any other international tribunal. Further, its brief summaries of various issues such as jus cogens and other major issues in international are so overly simplified that they are misleading in what their actual meanings are. Granted, the chapter on diplomatic immunity does have a good section on the diplomatic bag; however, the rest of that chapter is rather sparse. For those who want to learn about international law, I highly recommend avoiding this text.
