International Law in World Politics: An Introduction, 3rd editionShirley V. Scott
|Forthcoming July 2017/340 pages |
Reflecting a dramatically changing global context, the third edition of International Law in World Politics introduces the actors, structures, processes, and issues of international law in a way that makes sense to students of political science.
Features of the new edition include:
• current case studies that bring the subject to life.
• an entirely new chapter on international courts and tribunals.
• more attention to trade and economic issues.
• even-handed discussion of such contentious topics as the Iran nuclear deal, Africa and the ICC, the Paris climate agreement, rising tensions in the South China Sea, and more.
The result is a text that effectively explains the role that international law plays in the arena of world politics today.
