Product description


Boczek (emeritus, Kent State) offers a commendable achievement and worthy successor in this heir apparent to his outdated The International Law Dictionary...This is an invaluable resource for law and academic libraries with international relations collections. Highly recommended. General readers, undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, professionals.--CHOICE

...a well-organized and thorough treatment of the burgeoning area of international law....Many libraries will find International Law to be an excellent addition to their collections. It is a natural choice for academic and law libraries as well as government and nonprofit libraries in agencies and organizations that deal with international issues. It may also fill an important need in public libraries, particularly with the heightened interest that citizens now have about international matters.--American Reference Books Annual

It provides an impressive array of scholarly entries on all basic tenets of Public International Law - thus combining the best features of both an encyclopedic dictionary and a textbook....This is a fabulous resource for students, scholars, and all legal professionals.--American Society of International Law

Boczek (Case Western Reserve University School of Law) combines the features of a brief encyclopedic dictionary and a textbook in this reference. In the first chapter he introduces general topics related to international law, including its sources and the relationship between international and national law. Subsequent chapters cover the law of peace as it governs states, individuals, spatial context and interaction. Boczek concludes with a chapter on the law of war as it is manifested in international humanitarian law. The volume contains a list of acronyms and abbreviations; a glossary of Latin phrases; a chronology of major developments in international law; a table of cases; and a list of the 373 entries.--Reference and Research Book News

...a very useful work....provides a wealth of information about international law, including the assumptions and rationales on which it is based and the rules and principles that are used in interpreting and administering the law....useful for a wide readership.--s
