'This textbook not only provides a source of knowledge but also a source of critical thinking which captivates the reader's attention. Every person dealing with international law should read Professor Klabbers' International Law: its case law discussion and fascinating analysis of international law principles provides a powerful tool when teaching the international legal order.' Elena Katselli, Newcastle Law School
'This is a refreshing addition to the long list of textbooks on international law. It comprehensively discussed all the fields of international law that a reader of an introductory textbook will be interested in. Yet, it does much more, by explaining why often impossible to identify a single right answer to any legal question and by placing international law in a broader context of global governance, politics and ethics. Written in Klabbers' characteristic lucid and critical style, this is a book that many readers will enjoy reading, rather than just studying.' André Nollkaemper, University of Amsterdam
A landmark publication in the teaching of international law from one of the world's leading international lawyers. This refreshingly clear, concise textbook conveys the dynamics of international law through four questions: where does it come from? To whom does it apply? How does it resolve conflict? What does it say?
