International Law provides a fresh, student-focused approach and European perspective on the central issues in public international law. Providing ideal coverage for short foundational courses, this engaging new textbook introduces all the essential topics in a concise and manageable way. Dedicated chapters on environmental law, economic law, and human rights are included, ensuring that appropriate coverage is given to the various areas affected by international law. The core topics are fully explained in plain terms and the principles and key terminology outlined in an accessible style. Taking a critical perspective throughout, Henriksen introduces the areas of debate and builds students' confidence in understanding the complexities of the international legal system and its operation across borders. Particular emphasis is placed on the key issues in civil law jurisdictions, making this text perfectly suited for students based in mainland Europe. A range of learning features highlight the important areas of debate and encourage students to engage critically with important disputes. Central issues boxes introduce each chapter, highlighting the controversies and key principles explored; chapter summaries provide an overview for students to review their understanding of a particular topic; discussion questions encourage students to apply their knowledge to addressing specific problems within the context of the subject; and carefully selected recommended reading lists guide students' wider research and enable them to broaden and consolidate their learning. Online Resource Centre An accompanying Online Resource Centre offers a range of freely available materials to support lecturers and students in their studies. The resources included with International Law include: - Updates on the law and significant developments within the field of public international law - Short podcasts introducing the core topics covered - Advice on answering the Questions for Discussion at the end of each chapter - Links to other international law resources



The text is very informative, inventive, and uses contemporary examples to clarify the law. * Petur Dam Leifsson, University of Iceland * The book is very clearly presented and concise. It is very accessible and presents all the relevant topics in a succinct and structured manner. * Dr Daniela Obradovic, University of Amsterdam * The author writes as though he is giving a lecture, explaining the key issues, rather than mapping out the complete subject area in excessive detail. * Marta Johansson, OErebro University * The writing style is clear and suitable for non-native English speakers. The author gives many examples to clarify the theory and this will certainly appeal to the students. I like that the author deals with international law issues from a civil law perspective, as this makes the book highly suitable for the European continent. * Dr Ingrid Westendorp, Maastricht University * I am impressed. The chapters are very well structured and, though concise, still in-depth. The chapter commentaries, recommended reading, and particularly the questions for discussion are excellent. * Professor Larissa van den Herik, Leiden University *
