Yoram Dinstein's influential textbook is an indispensable guide to the legal issues of war and peace, armed attack, self-defense and enforcement measures taken under the aegis of the Security Council. The sixth edition follows the latest developments in international law, analyzes recent armed conflicts and reexamines contemporary doctrinal debates. Many segments of the book have been completely rewritten to reflect up-to-date State practice. The text remains a wide-ranging and highly readable introduction to the legal dimensions of war, aggression and self-defence.
