Structure and methodology of the text are transparent and cross-jurisdictional, not tied to the perceptions and approaches of one particular jurisdiction (e.g. common law or civil law), therefore making it applicable to every student of international law.
Comprehensive coverage without being as dense and lengthy as other competing texts, therefore accessible to all students, regardless of prior knowledge or background.
Good use of signposting in text through subheadings and logical chapter structures, accessible pedagogy for upper level undergraduates (especially in comparison to some of the competing texts).
Provides a framework for students rather than just a prescriptive narrative, arming the student with the analytical and methodological tools to pursue the discipline in greater depth.
Further updated since previous edition to include new case studies and court decisions, as well as sections on women's rights, cyber-attacks and Islamic ideologies.
Includes a companion website to help students and instructors by offering suggestions for further reading and discussion questions, as well as updates to the law between editions to keep students' knowledge as up to date as possible.
