Editorial Reviews

Review


"A learned and serious introduction to international law by a recognized scholar in the field."--Foreign Affairs


"Professor Higgins achieves her objective--to depart from the traditional style of the general courses in international law given at the Hague Academy of International Law and to offer instead her own perspectives and ideas. It is a rich harvest, and it should stimulate many discussions. She maintains a balance between being controversial and critical, on the one hand, and being a pioneering problem-solver, on the other hand. It is not surprising that the American Society of International Law has already awarded its Certificate of Merit to her for this book...."--Michigan Law Review


"Rosalyn Higgins's book provides the best overview of the current role of international law. It is a balanced and reliable accounting of the achievements and limitations of international law, as well as a helpful guide to the way it works in relation to some of the main problems of international life."--American Political Science Review

Format: Hardcover
Prior to joining the International Court of Justice, RosalynHiggins wrote Problems & Process, one of the best books written onmodern international law in the past ten years. She successfully writes for two audiences; neophytes of international law, as well as for experienced, lifelong students of the subject. It is rare that an author can present such an accurate and fulfilling work on as many levels as she. Read this book and understand why she sits on the World Court.

Format: Paperback
Reading this book is like a breeze of fresh air in the worl of the literature on international law, which is mostly just listed rules and principles. The author has come up with a truly original and enjoyable style, which is much more fluent and lets the reader feel him/herself more as a person, who does know something about international law. It is good to see that those who sit on the World Court, really do know the subject and can handle it just as skilfully as the clowns handle their stuff at circus.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is really interesting because it doesn't try to present all the aspects of the international law, but to raise the relevant questions, the main issues and problems that arise from the current state of the international law. Really interesting.

Format: Paperback
This text is a pointless foray into the venue of international law. The long winded sentences are filled with self adulation and lackinging in valuable information
