Principles of Public International Law 7ed, 2008  $122.00 

By Ian Brownlie. Q.C.

Review(s) from previous edition:

"From the reviews of the 4th edition: 'This systematic and balanced account of international law, written with great clarity and conciseness, is both approachable and authoratitive. It is evident that each sentence carries the weight of much learning, and that the language has been crafted to give a precise and nuanced account of Professor Brownlie's views. Well indexed and well structured, the book is a delight to use.'' - Vaughan Lowe, Law Quarterly Review


  • The most well established and authoritative textbook on international law on the market - readers know that they will be accessing unequalled expertise and knowledge in this book
  • It gives readers a carefully balanced perspective on international issues from the point of view of someone who has had substantial experience as Counsel and Advocate in international tribunals and also as Arbitrator. The book has appeared in local language editions in countries including China, Japan, Korea, Portugal and Russia.
  • Superb coverage of jurisprudence and historical materials allowing readers to follow and gain a deeper understanding of the development of international law, which is essential to its comprehension
  • Includes rigorously detailed references and a particularly thorough and comprehensive index, making it the ideal reference text or stand alone resource
New to this edition
  • Fully updated to include reference to all the major cases
  • Closely examines the following key areas:
    Extraordinary rendition
    Definition of genocide
    Activities of the International Criminal Court
    Projects of the International Law Commission
    Relationship of state immunity and human rights
  • Continues to have strong coverage on key topics including the environment, human rights and the use of force
Principles of Public International Law has been shaping the study and application of international law for over 40 years. Written by a world-renowned expert, this book was the first to bring human rights into the mainstream of international law.

This seventh edition, fully updated since 2003, continues to provide the balance, clarity and expertise expected by Brownlie readers. The depth of knowledge displayed by the author, along with the detailed referencing and logical structure, make this title an indispensible resource for students, scholars and practitioners working in or studying international law.
