Brierly's Law of Nations

An Introduction to the Role of International Law in International Relations

Seventh Edition

Andrew Clapham

  • The first new edition of this classic work in nearly fifty years
  • Ideal introduction to international law for both students and those coming from other disciplines such as international relations
  • Fully updated and revised, but Andrew Clapham has retained Brierly's distinctive and concise style
  • Devoid of legal jargon, yet true to the language of law, it demystifies legal principles as they apply in international relations

New to this Edition:

  • New chapters on contemporary issues, such as the basis of international obligation, the role of the UN and the International Criminal Court, and the emergence of new states
