Problems and Process: International Law and How We Use It
Problems and Process: International Law and How We Use It
By Rosalyn Higgins
Oxford University Press, 1994, 274 pp.

This is a learned and serious introduction to international law by a recognized scholar in the field. While it deals with U.N. conflict resolution and human rights, the bulk of the book is a methodical account of the development of inter-national law from its theoretical sources to its application to day-to-day issues like conflicts over natural resources.
