Written by over 800 of the world's leading authorities and edited at the premier research institution for international law, this new edition of the definitive reference work on international law contains over 1,619 articles covering the full breadth of the subject. Articles address the history and theory of international law; all sub-fields such as international criminal law, environmental law, and economic law; leading cases; and significant treaties, organizations, armed conflicts, and geographical issues.
Each article contains cross-references to related articles, and includes a carefully selected bibliography of the most important writings and primary materials as a guide to further reading.
The Encyclopedia can be used by a wide range of readers. Experienced scholars and practitioners will find a wealth of information on areas that they do not already know well as well as in-depth treatments on every aspect of their specialist topics. At the same time articles can be set as readings for students on taught courses.
Every article has been thoroughly peer reviewed and all references have been checked over by the editorial staff giving readers total confidence in the quality and accuracy of the content.
The Encyclopedia will be a primary resource for all students and scholars of international law; counsel, judges and arbitrators involved in international law cases; and government legal advisers.

"There is little question that the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law lives up to its claim as the definitve reference work for international law, especially for a new generation of international law scholars who are more comfortable clicking rather than thumbing their way to answers." -- Sean D. Murphy, The American Journal of International Law
