Seriously, this book could inspire any non-international-law student and I think that's the best recommendation for any person. It's fun, and honest. Highly recommended.

Great introduction 3 Mar. 2008
By CLAUDE D'ESTREE - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you have never taken a class in international law and you want a short, but very well written, introduction to the subject, this is the book for you. I strongly recommend it to all my students in public international law, international law & human rights, and international humanitarian law of armed conflict.

High-Brow Nutshell 2 Jun. 2011
By not me - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"International Law" is a good overview of international law basics. The author knows how law functions in the real world of diplomats and officials; his analysis of how international law emerges from treaties and state practice is sophisticated; and his droll political asides make the book stand out from other introductory surveys. It's a classy performance. That said, prospective buyers should know that once the author descends from the mountaintop of "big picture" jurisprudence, he gives short shrift to the particulars of doctrine. His treatment of specific topics such as economic law, human rights, environmental law, and the use of force is very rushed.

Bottomline: "International Law" is a well-written, thought-provoking read, but law students and practicing lawyers may find it of only limited value. The ideal reader is probably a political science or international relations student looking to understand the basic concepts, vocabulary and methods of reasoning of international law.

Sweet and Simple 3 Mar. 2009
By Josh Pasqualini - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great Book. As a Legal Studies student I have found this book to be of huge help as both an introduction to International Law and as a reference. Lowe communicates points efficiently and with great examples of the different mechanisms involved in its process. Extremely well organized and definitely worth the time spent reading.

5 Stars.
