First published in 1970, A Modern Introduction to International Law rapidly established itself as the most widely used and successful textbook in its field. It covers a variety of topics from diplomatic immunity to the UN and from recognition of government to war crimes. This new edition has been completely revised and updated by Peter Malanczuk to take account of many recent developments and includes new chapters on human rights, the environment and the economy.

A companion volume - Key Documents in International Law - will be available for use in conjunction with the eighth edition. Extensively cross referenced with the eighth edition, it will provide access to many of the primary treaties, conventions, protocols, agreements, and acts.
