Interdisciplinary materials introduce a variety of perspectives, such as economics and international relations theory. International Law is an effective blend of current issues and thinking alongside traditional theories and concepts.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the Sixth Edition addresses major developments in international law and new issues and challenges arising from developments in the U.N., U.S., NATO, and other countries with respect to Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, and North Korea.
