About this product
- DescriptionAlso available as an e-book Chance, Order, Change: The Course of International Law, General Course on Public International Law by J. Crawford The course of international law over time needs to be understood if international law is to be understood. This work aims to provide such an understanding. It is directed t at topics or subject headings - sources, treaties, states, human rights and so on - but at some of the key unresolved problems of the discipline. Unresolved, they call into question its status as a discipline. Is international law law properly so-called ? In what respects is it systematic ? Does it - can it - respect the rule of law ? These problems can be resolved, or at least reduced, by an imaginative reading of our shared practices and our increasingly shared history, with an emphasis on process. In this sense the practice of the institutions of international law is to be understood as the law itself. They are in a dialectical relationship with the law, shaping it and being shaped by it. This is explained by reference to actual cases and examples, providing a course of international law in some standard sense as well.
