When International Law Works

Realistic Idealism After 9/11 and the Global Recession

Tai-Heng Cheng

  • A uniquely non-ideological treatment of the heavily debated discipline of international legal studies.
  • Departs from typical scholarship on international law by applying a proposed new theory to detailed case studies.
  • Instead of furthering an irresolvable debate on the importance of international law, this book provides practical guidance to governmental actors and scholars in confronting new global problems.
  • Useful for teaching how international legal theory relates to actual developments in cross-border economics and crime.
