MEDIA REVIEWS

Orakhelashvili has done a tremendous job in updating a seminal textbook on international law. Clear, concise and comprehensive yet accessible, Akehurst's Modern Introduction to International Law continues to be of great appeal both to newcomers to the field of international law and those well versed in the subject.
Christian Henderson, Professor of International Law, University of Sussex, United Kingdom

First published in 1970, Akehurst is a classic textbook that has introduced generations of students to the study of international law. In this new edition, Orakhelashvili brings it fully up to date while preserving its distinctly clear and insightful treatment of both doctrinal and theoretical questions. An essential companion for every serious student of international law.
Umut OEzsu, Assistant Professor, Carleton University, Canada

For half a century Akehurst has stood out among introductions to international law for its readability and comprehensiveness, and its insightful analysis. Few scholars are better placed than Alexander Orakhelashvili to bring this classic text right up to date, and the resulting work will be an essential reference point for everyone in the field.
Professor Philip Alston, John Norton Pomeroy Professor of Law, New York University, United States

For many years, Akehurst's textbook was the standard for law and politics students studying public international law. This new edition, ably updated by Alexander Orakhelashvili, includes key advances in international law, for example, the Kosovo Decision and the evolving law on the right to self-determination, the explosion in international criminal tribunals, the growth of international environmental law and the increased relevance of arbitral tribunals. All of which is to be much applauded.
Dr. Kevin W. Gray, Adjunct Professor, Humber College, Canada
