Reflecting a dramatically changing global context, the third edition of International Law in World Politics introduces the actors, structures, processes, and issues of international law in a way that makes sense to students of political science. Features of the new edition include: current case studies that bring the subject to life; an entirely new chapter on international courts and tribunals; more attention to trade and economic issues; even-handed discussion of such contentious topics as the Iran nuclear deal; Africa and the ICC, the Paris climate agreement, rising tensions in the South China Sea; and more. The result is a text that effectively explains the role that international law plays in the arena of world politics today.
