by Valerie International Law for Undergraduates Epps,Valerie Epps

The fourth edition of this widely used text book combines narratives sections that explain the basic law with cases, questions, and problems that allow students to read actual legal materials and apply them to other similar or distinguishable situations. These materials do not assume that undergraduates are less able than graduate students to grasp difficult issues, nor do they assume that undergraduates cannot deal with a variety of complex instruments that bear on a particular problem. Rather, Epps focuses on the central problems of international law, assuming no prior legal knowledge except that gained by living in a society organized under a legal system, and encourages students to work through a number of questions and and problems that are presented in a variety of international contexts. The book's coverage is comprehensive including recent materials on sources, treaties, jurisdiction, extradition, the law of the sea, the environment, international entities, human rights, international courts, terrorism and war.

As the book name suggests, I used this book to complete my course on none other than International Law. I do recall referencing the book quite a bit throughout the semester, however I would in no way say it is dire to have in order to complete the course I took. Actually I kind of take that back, my professor took his exam questions practically word for word out of this book, and once I figured that out, all it took was a quick read of the chapter in order to be able to recognize the excerpts from the book on the exams. So all in all, a decent purchase :) Oh... also, the seller was fine, shipping was timely, and therefore I had no issues there.
Even though I used this as a texbook, it was not a bad read. Pretty useful and to the point for the most part.
This book was very informative,but it seemed to mainly focus on the U.S. and it's relations with other countries. Since the title is International Law, I assumed it would cover more countries and their disputes. Ever way, I learned a lot from this book.
Tough read but great information for anyone interested in international law.
It is required reading for this international law class. Easy to read and pretty good explanations of laws and very understandable.
It is a good one but it is kind of hard to be understood. We work on it during the class and I am happy to have it. There is so many international court desicions. You can find it very useful. You can learn a lot about the treaties between USA and other states.
An easily digestible law book on what could be a very difficult topic. The cases are pertinent, and many are very current. I use this book for class, and have found it appropriate for students interested in law, but not necessarily in becoming a lawyer. Well written, especially for a textbook.
The course I'm using this book for is one of the best one I've taken while in university. I have extensively marked up the textbook, and plan on reading the rest of the cases well after my international law class ends.
