International Law and the Rise of Nations

International Law and the Rise of Nations
The State System and the Challenge of Ethnic Groups

Edited by:

August 2001 | 352 pages | CQ Press
Among the significant consequences of the Cold War&BAD:rsquo;s end has been the rise of nations and the challenges that these nations pose for global order and international law. Taking a unique approach to explore this phenomenon, Beck and Ambrosio consider three principal themes: the emergence of nations, the international legal challenges that such nations pose, and international legal efforts to accommodate nations within the global state system. Students of international law, political science, and ethnic studies will find this book useful for its focus on an overlooked, but important, subject.

This is a most for students of international relations to be able to understand crises of self determination due to nationalist movement with special focus on Africa

This book approaches the international relationship from the conventional international law perspective, which gives very crucial understanding of the current international legal relationship. This is recommended as one of the essential book for my LL.M International Economic Law. Our Library is processing for order and students also will be buying this book.
