Structure and methodology of the text are transparent and cross-jurisdictional, not tied to the perceptions and approaches of one particular jurisdiction (e.g. common law or civil law), therefore making it applicable to every student of international law. Comprehensive coverage without being as dense and lengthy as other competing texts, therefore accessible to all students, regardless of prior knowledge or background. Good use of signposting in text through subheadings and logical chapter structures, accessible pedagogy for upper level undergraduates (especially in comparison to some of the competing texts). Provides a framework for students rather than just a prescriptive narrative, arming the student with the analytical and methodological tools to pursue the discipline in greater depth. Further updated since previous edition to include new case studies and court decisions, as well as sections on womens rights, cyber-attacks and Islamic ideologies. Includes a companion website to help students and instructors by offering suggestions for further reading and discussion questions, as well as updates to the law between editions to keep students knowledge as up to date as possible.

"For over half a century Akehurst has stood out among introductions to international law for its readability and comprehensiveness, and its insightful analysis. Alexander Orakhelashvili has done a superb job in bringing it not only into the twenty-first century but right up to date. It remains an essential reference point for everyone in the field." Philip Alston, John Norton Pomeroy Professor of Law, New York University, USA "First published in 1970, Akehurst is a classic textbook that has introduced generations of students to the study of international law. In this ninth edition, Alexander Orakhelashvili brings it fully up to date while preserving its distinctly clear and insightful treatment of both doctrinal and theoretical questions. Akehurst remains an essential companion for every serious student of international law." Umut zsu, Associate Professor, Carleton University, Canada "Alexander Orakhelashvili has masterfully updated Akehursts textbook for the ninth edition to include recent developments in international law, notably in the law of the sea, treaty law, international trade law, and, of course, international criminal law." Kevin W. Gray, Lecturer, University of Toronto, Canada "This new edition of Akehurst has been fully updated by Orakhelashvili to take into account key developments in terms of state practice, treaties, and case law. It is an up to date and comprehensive yet accessible introduction to international law that will be of use to students of all levels, academics, practitioners, and anybody with an interest in international law as it operates in both its historical and contemporary context." Christian Henderson, Professor of International Law, University of Sussex, UK
