International Law Studies

Collected Papers: Volume Two

`Reader beware. You are about to be challenged and drawn into a realm of unorthodox ideas, often stated provocatively ...' (From the Foreword).
The field of international law is blessed with a broad range of high quality scholarship. But a truly fresh approach and real, original ideas always provide a welcome addition. Any serious player in the international law world will seek out these rare challenges to classic scholarship. International Law Studies is one of these unique works.
In this second volume of collected papers, the author addresses: - environmental law, - human rights, - international criminal law, - foreign relations law, - the intersection of political science and international law, and - the study and practice of international law. The insightful and probing nature of the author's wholly new analysis of these critical topics will intrigue any international law scholar or practitioner. To miss International Law Studies is to shut out one of the most thought-provoking voices in the field.
This is the second volume in a series of collected papers.
