This 2007 volume is intended to help readers understand the relationship between international law and international relations (IL/IR). As a testament to this dynamic area of inquiry, new research on IL/IR is now being published in a growing list of traditional law reviews and disciplinary journals. The excerpted articles in this volume, all of which were first published in International Organization, represent some of the most important research since serious social science scholarship began in this area more than twenty five years ago. They are important milestones toward making IL/IR a central concern of scholarly research in international affairs. The contributions cover some of the main topics of international affairs to provide readers with a range of theoretical perspectives, concepts, and heuristics that can be used to analyze the relationship between international law and international relations.

The study of any area of law can appear somewhat daunting to a new
student and presenting material in an accessible way, while retaining
academic integrity, has become a significant feature of each edition of this
book. This new edition is no exception and the book aims to be a complete
text for students of Contract Law at A-level as well as those on other
courses in further and higher education. The frequent revision programme
means that the book is up to date with regard to examination specifications
and this edition incorporates the new OCR four-module requirements,
including both new source materials for the Special Study paper and
examples of the new-style dilemma questions.
As before, the book includes opportunities to make connections between
areas of law and to consider the moral, ethical and social issues found
within the law. The reminders within the text prompt you to think about
issues, to consider whether outcomes are fair to individuals and to consider
the way in which justice is achieved within the broad context of the society
in which we live. Many of these issues are raised in ‘boxed’ questions,
indicating points at which you could stop and consider answers for yourself
before moving on to the next section. At the end of each chapter is an
updated set of questions, including some from recent A2 examination
papers, for you to practise, with suggested outline answers at the end of the
book. A whole section towards the end examines the general context of the
law of contract, and the specific ways in which a synoptic overview is
assessed by the major examination boards have been updated. The aim is
twofold: to help you to achieve success in examinations and to present a
context in which contract law may be set in order to acquire skills for life
and to extend the value of study
