Man and the World

International Law At Work
A non fiction book by

Beginning with the first known instance of a legal agreement between rulers of neighboring states in the ancient world, Deming traces the development of international law, dating its first significant forms from the sixteenth century when the basic principles of dealings between nations were codified. He then examines international law in relation to civil and common law countries, explaining the various kinds of treaties, the function of custom, general principles, and judicial decisions. He explains the procedures for the settlement of disputes and discusses such international organizations as the United Nations and the Common Market. Also covered are the laws of the sea, air and outer space, and the role of the individual under international law.

This meticulously researched book, checked for accuracy by experts, will be of interest to everyone who wants to understand the principles and operation of international law and its influence on relations between countries.
