The Cambridge Companion to International Law is edited by James Crawford, University of Cambridge and Martti Koskenniemi, University of Helsinki.
The book was launched today at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge. It provides a perfect introduction to international law from both traditional and critical perspectives. The companion brings together a group of leading academics and bridges the divide between legal and non-legal methodologies; traditional and critical approaches; theoretical and practical projects of social emaniciplation; and Anglo-American and European orientations towards international law.
Some of the features of the book are as follows:
– World-class contributors from a wide range of disciplines make it accessible to both academics and professionals working in the field.
– Chapters provide politically and theoretically informed overviews without the technical and specialised vocabularies.
– Transcends the key divides in international law to provide multiple insights into the main issues.
