This important book contains original essays by eighteen of the world's leading scholars and practitioners of international relations and international law. Together they address the highly topical question of the role that international law plays in international politics at the turn of the century. Both theoretical and political in its scope, The Role of Law in International Politics examines the character of international rules and norms, the way in which they develop, and how they affect political decision-making in a variety of contexts including international peace and security, international economic relations, international human rights, international development, and the environment. A truly interdisciplinary work under the editorship of Michael Byers, it will be of interest to all teachers, students, and practitioners of international law and politics as well as many non-specialists who are rapidly developing an interest in this highly topical field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Michael Byers' collection is excellent and makes a real contribution to thinking on the role of law in international politics. In impressive contributions by Martii Koskenniemi, Christine Chinkin and Anne-Marie Slaughter we are treated to examples of what scholarly work in this area should look like. * Dr Colin J Harvey, The Ethnic Conflict Research Digest Vol. 3 No. 2 *
This collection ... does a remarkable job of examining the field and bringing together diverse views in an interesting synthesis. * Greg Bailey, Int. Affairs Jan 2001. *
contains two useful chapters focusing on human rights. * Greg Bailey, Int. Affairs Jan 2001. *
within the communities it seeks to bring together it is likely to be a standard work for some time. * Greg Bailey, Int. Affairs Jan 2001. *
the quality of the individual contributions ... serve to whet the appetite for IR approaches to international law ... It is hoped that the essays in this volume will encourage informed dialogue between scholars. * Robert Cryer Modern Law Review November 2000 *
