This book gives a developing country perspective of international investment law, while the author is not as 'forceful' as Harvey, he does make his points quite clear. However this book has very little economic explanation behind the happenings of the international economic order, the author is very sedate and does not make as many wise cracks like say Chang in Bad Samaritan. Inspite of all these I have given the book 5 star because it is yet another fine example of what a text book should be (most cambridge books are!), straight to the point, descriptive yet critical, balanced yet puts the author's own views.

Gives a different point of view from more Western-focused scholars like Dolzer or Schreuer and can provide a totally new perspective. However the authour does go overboard in some areas and can make assumptions without providing proper citation. There is a clear pro-developing state theme throughout the book, no bad thing, but again Sornarajah tends to adopt positions that are not supported by Law or custom.
