About the Authors
  • The Chernobyl disaster, the Amoco Cadiz oil spill and the Colorado River dispute are examples of an activity conducted by one state which has serious adverse effects in the territory of another, or in global common areas. This book details the international rules and compensation procedures and is intended for use by governmental officials, international lawyers and jurists. It discusses existing laws on international liability and considers the underlying legal issues that require further development. It is one of the few books on the subject written from the perspective of a developing country with rapid economic and social development.

    • Comprehensive study of the subject
    • Written from the perspective of a developing country
    • Analytical study of the policy considerations of the legal rules

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Dr. Xue Hanqin has produced a well-researched and balanced study … Dr. Xue's book is rich. She deploys an impressive array of materials to describe, summarize, and analyze the current regimes on transboundary damage in international law. It contains a wealth of information that is exceedingly useful to a reader having a serious interest in this particular area. She interweaves the normal 'environmental law' issues and State responsibility/liability issues in a way that is clear, succinct and fitting. One normally would be content with success in either area, but Dr. Xue is clearly successful in both. I found Dr. Xue's book to be rigorous, thought-provoking and balanced. It is a substantial contribution by a Chinese scholar, in the heavy-duty tradition, to the literature on transboundary damage in international law. I have found it to be immensely useful in my own work and I recommend it to the readers.' Sienho Yee, Chinese Journal of International Law
