520 |a "Direct and informative, International Law deepens law school students' understanding of their course work in this subject, as well as that of undergraduate and graduate students' in international political science. Mark Weston Janis clearly explains the sources, processes, and issues of both public international law and international business transactions. The timely seventh edition reflects current international policy in the U.S., and keeps pace with developments in the international courts, human rights law, and international environmental law. An engaging overview of international law, this concise introduction features: broad coverage of public international law issues, including constitutional law and international business topics; a sensible approach organized around three key questions: what are international legal rules? what is the international legal process? what role does international law play in international relations? Updated throughout, the seventh edition looks at new developments: changes to U.S. international law and policy with the Obama administration; Bond v. United States, and other Supreme Court cases on international and foreign law; updates on international human rights law and the laws of armed conflict; new material charting the increasing work load of the international courts, such as the International Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights, and the International Criminal Court"--Unedited summary from book cover
