This innovative Research Handbook explores recent developments at the intersection of international law, sociology and social theory. In doing so, it highlights anew the potential contribution of sociological methods and theories to the study of international law, and illustrates their use in the examination of contemporary problems of practical interest to international lawyers. The diverse body of expert contributors discuss a wide range of methodologies and approaches - including those inspired by the giants of twentieth century social thought, as well as emergent strands such as computational linguistics, performance theory and economic sociology. With chapters exploring topical areas including the globalization of law, economic globalization, property rights, global governance, international legal counsel, social networks, and anthropology, the Research Handbook presents a number of paths for future research in international legal scholarship. Full of original insight, this interdisciplinary Research Handbook will be essential reading for academics and scholars in international law and sociology, as well as postgraduate students. Lawyers practicing in international law will also find this a stimulating read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Sociological approaches to international law have gained significant momentum in the course of the last decade. The contributions to this Research Handbook reflect the diversity of sociological theories and illustrate how they can enrich international legal scholarship. The Research Handbook is an excellent guide to the sociology of international law 'from Huber to post-structuralism.' -- Christian J. Tams, University of Glasgow, UK
'This Research Handbook offers a timely sociological reading of the functioning of the international legal order, using diverse sociological approaches, spreading from the thought of Max Huber to post-structuralism. It offers a range of the best analyses on the topic and sets a new agenda for the field. Indeed a fascinating book.' -- Helene Ruiz Fabri, Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law, Luxembourg
