Description
Students of public international law require access to an overwhelming variety of materials which are not always easy to obtain. Cases and Materials on International Law draws together, in one volume, an extensive selection of extracts and background information supplemented by authoritative commentary and expert analysis.
Widely recognised as the leading text of its kind, the sixth edition of Harris has been completely revised and updated to include all major developments in the subject:
•    The chapter on the use of force has been greatly revised to take account of the
      Kosovo intervention and the invasion of Iraq
•    The chapter on jurisdiction takes account of the Pinochet and other cases on the
      immunity of state agents for torture and other crimes
•    The chapter on state responsibility has been substantially revised to include the
      International Law Commission's Draft Articles on State Responsibility
•    The chapter on the law of the sea incorporates the jurisprudence of the new
      International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea
•    The chapter on human rights takes account of the many developments in the law
      of human rights
•    Throughout the text changes have been made to reflect the jurisprudence of the
      International Court of Justice
A stimulating and wide-ranging work, Harris is designed to support students throughout their studies, providing a sound basis for any public international law course. The new edition will appeal not only to students and teachers in the United Kingdom, but also in Australia, Canada, the United States and other jurisdictions.
