I bought this book for a course and can only recommend it. It is a great introduction into the field and covers a wide range of long-standing and more recent debates since the end of World War II. Furthermore, it also provides good insight into the historical facts related to the cases treated while not being legthy or boring. I believe it is a valuable source of knowledge both for students of international law and international relations and considering that it is exceptionally well written it is also great as a passtime read.
