6-Volume Set




Edited by Joseph Weiler, New York University, USA

Throughout recorded history, rulers of states, kingdoms, or other political

entities have entered into treaties with each other for the purposes of ending

or averting violent conflict. However, the formation of the United Nations in

1945 created a means for the world community to enforce international law

upon members that violate its charter. The trend towards multilateral

commitments has accelerated since then, and it is now meaningful to study

international law as a means towards resolving conflicts among states.

Traditionally, states were the sole subjects of international law, but recent

interpretations of international human rights law, international

humanitarian law, and international trade law have been inclusive of

corporations and even individuals.

This new Routledge Major Work, a six-volume collection, covers the current

nature, scope, and issues within international law.
