International Law

RRP $19.95

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Interest in international law has increased greatly over the past decade, largely because of its key role in such hot-button issues such as the Iraq War and Guantanamo, the World Trade Organization and the anti-capitalist movement, the Kyoto Convention on climate change, the apparent failure of the international system to deal with dire situations in Palestine and Darfur, and the plight of refugees and illegal immigrants around the world.

This Very Short Introduction explains what international law is, what its role in international society is, and how it operates. Dispelling many of the myths surrounding the topic, Vaughan Lowe clearly outlines what international law can and cannot do and what it is and what it isn't doing to make the world a better place. Lowe focuses on the problems the world faces, using terrorism, environmental change, poverty, and international violence to demonstrate the theory and practice of international law, and showing how these principles can be used for international co-operation.

The Eu, The Us And China - Towards A New International Order?

RRP $238.99

The interaction between the EU, the US and China is of particular importance to the formation of the international order in the 21st century. This book focuses on the latest developments and examines how critical the interactions between these three players are to future global governance. Jing Men, Wei Shen and their carefully selected contributors, explore how China's ascending role is contrasted with the seemingly declining influence of the US and the EU, and challenges the existing power configuration in the global order. They examine how China's growth and future development trajectory will be a key factor, and why it is still hesitant to the responsibilities it should assume in global governance. The book argues that in order to fully construct a working and productive triangle relationship between the EU, the US and China, and thus establish an effective political and economic global leadership, not only economic and trade cooperation, but more importantly, strategic thinking on global responsibilities should be developed among the three players. This book will appeal to researchers, professors and students of international and comparative politics, as well as international relations. It will also be of interest to officials working within international organisations or national ministries, as well as anyone who has a general interest in international affairs.
