Legal Aspects of the New International Economic Order

Edited by Kamal Hossain

Nichols, 1980, 285 pp.

Whatever shape, if any, the new international economic order may take, its advocates envisage a new legal order to go with it. Many of their ideas are developed in these essays, which take off from recent resolutions of the U.N. General Assembly and of UNCTAD and treat such matters as sovereignty, economic rights and duties of states, transfer of technology, and the Law of the Sea.
