  • Description:

    THIS IS A MODEST EFFORT to present in a concise and simple manner the basic principles of International Law. Intended primarily for use in the 2-unit course on the subject in the Law curriculum, it is also offered to all students of law and to my brethren in the bar. There is a tendency on the part of many people to minimize International Law as a remote discipline that has no direct relevance to their daily lives. This is regrettable.

    As a matter of fact, International Law now, more than at any other time, has an immediate bearing on the interests and, indeed, the very existence of states and, therefore, of the individuals who compose them. Involvement— of nations and of individuals—is the wave of the present. The statement that “no man is an island” is not just a flight of rhetoric but bespeaks the urgent need for a joining of hands by all the peoples of the world in the promotion of international peace and progress.
