Law and Power in International Relations

By James Fawcett

Faber and Faber, 1982, 144 pp.

Professor Fawcett, who has served as legal adviser to the British Foreign Office and director of studies at Chatham House, is learned in the law but makes no extravagant claims for its role in international relations. In this short book, he explores several specific areas such as "power frontiers" (including a close look at Sino-Soviet border questions), non-intervention and human rights.
