Brownlie's Principles of Public International LawOxford University Press has published the Eighth Edition of Brownlie's Principles of Public International Law edited by Professor James Crawford.

One of the classic treatises on international law, wholly updated in order to take account of recent developments Comprehensive coverage of the field, presenting the system of international law and its constituent elements in a clear and accessible fashion Extensively referenced in order to provide a solid foundation for further research Widely referred to by courts, practitioners and scholars, focusing on the issues as presented in practice today, including before international courts and tribunals

This is the eighth edition of Sir Ian Brownlie's classic distillation of public international law. Serving as a single volume introduction to the field as a whole, the book seeks to present international law as a system that is based on, and helps structure, relations among states and other entities at the international level. It aims to identify the constituent elements of that system in a clear and accessible fashion.

This edition, fully updated by James Crawford, Whewell Professor of International Law at the University of Cambridge, continues to provide the balance, clarity and expertise expected from this classic text. Completely updated to take account of the many areas of expansion and development in international law which have occurred since earlier editions, all chapters have been reviewed and brought up to date. The eighth edition features a new introduction and the chapters on environmental law, immunities, responsibility, use of force, and high seas freedoms have been substantially rewritten.

It remains an important textbook for students, undergraduate and graduate, treating core issues from a lawyer's perspective. It is also a vade mecum for practitioners desiring a solid footing on which to make further enquiries.
