A highly accessible and insightful overview of international conflict and security law, written by one of the leading scholars in the field. Rather than focusing on black-letter law, White places the legal framework within its historical and political context, adding helpful and up-to-date illustrations along the way. Its distinct focus on human security as well as its comprehensiveness also covering arms control and post-conflict law make for an original publication that will be of great use to newcomers and habitus alike. -- Tom Ruys, International Law Institute, Ghent University, Belgium Nigel White has provided a very worthwhile contribution to the literature on the law relating to armed conflict and arms control with his Advanced Introduction to International Conflict and Security Law . His book succeeds in combining in depth coverage of a broad range of topics with accessibility. It will be valuable in teaching (post) graduate level courses in the areas of law covered, including the law governing the use of force, the law of armed conflict and arms control regimes, as well as serving as a useful tool for researchers in those areas of the law. It also makes a number of interesting observations on how the law relates to policy and other considerations which will help the reader put the legal dimension of armed conflict into a broader perspective. -- T.D. Gill, Emeritus Professor of Military Law, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands Professor Nigel White is an established author in this field. The new edition of this book provides an authoritative, comprehensive yet succinct and up-to-date analysis of the law and practice in this area. I am happy to recommend this insightful and accessible book to those interested in conflict and security law. -- Surya P. Subedi, University of Leeds, UK
