The Use of Force and International Law offers an authoritative overview of international law governing the resort to force. Looking through the prism of the contemporary challenges that this area of international law faces, including technology, sovereignty, actors, compliance and enforcement, this book addresses key aspects of international law in this area: the general breadth and scope of the prohibition of force, what is meant by 'force', the use of force through the UN and regional organisations, the use of force in peacekeeping operations, the right of self-defence and the customary limitations upon this right, forcible intervention in civil conflicts, the controversial doctrine of humanitarian intervention. Suitable for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, academics and practitioners, The Use of Force and International Law offers a contemporary, comprehensive and accessible treatment of the subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book is an excellent example of the 'positivist-objectivist' approach to interpreting the international law on the use of force. The result is a comprehensive and even-handed treatment of the many complex arguments on the urgent issue of our time, the legality of resort to military force.' Mary Ellen O'Connell, University of Notre Dame, Indiana
