'Malcolm Shaw's International Law has been an indispensable resource for students of international law since its first publication in 1977. It gives an accurate and well-balanced account of the development and current state of the law. In light of recent developments, the new chapters on international criminal law and the International Court of Justice are welcome. I warmly recommend Shaw to anyone studying international law at undergraduate or graduate level.' James Crawford, The Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge
'When I was teaching Shaw's International Law was my textbook of choice for the students. I continue today to find this book very useful and well organized. It is good news that a Sixth Edition guarantees that it remains thoroughly contemporary, with new chapters added and everything updated.' Dame Rosalyn Higgins, President of the International Court of Justice
'Shaw's treatise has been praised as being particularly well suited for 'novice' students of the field ... it is surprisingly user-friendly.' American Journal of International Law
'An outstanding treatise which I use regularly in the course of my work at the Court. It excels in precision, comprehensiveness and topicality. On many issues, like questions of territory, it has no equal in any language. And last but not least, it reads well.' Bruno Simma, Judge, International Court of Justice
Engaging, authoritative and academically rigorous, this is the definitive international law textbook. Comprehensively updated content includes new chapters on international criminal law and the International Court of Justice, reflecting current trends in course coverage. The stimulating writing style motivates students to explore the subject, and encourages development of analytical thinking.
