About the Authors
  • Now in its third edition, International Law: Cases and Materials with Australian Perspectives remains an authoritative textbook on international law for Australian students. With a strong focus on Australian practice and interpretation, the text examines how international law is developed, implemented and interpreted within the international community and considers new and developing approaches within this field. This edition has been comprehensively updated to address recent developments in international law. The selection of cases and materials provides a thorough coverage of core areas and addresses a range of contemporary challenges, including climate change, human rights, nuclear proliferation and the South China Sea. A new chapter on international trade law reflects the growing importance of this body of law in Australian practice. Guiding commentary provides a rigorous analysis of key principles. Written by a team of experts with substantial experience in this field, International Law is an essential resource for students.

    • Balances coverage of international law as applied globally, with Australian perspectives
    • A single text covering principles and cases with a good balance between commentary and well curated case extracts
    • Substantially rewritten, refreshed and modified to reflect recent developments and practice with a new chapter on international trade law and new content on international humanitarian law
