This book describes and analyses the attitudes and techniques which English judges adopt or ought to adopt when confronted with problems arising from the conduct of foreign policy by the executive. Its central theme, therefore, is the relationship of the executive and the judiciary in matters involving foreign relations rather than the formulation of rules of substantive, whether municipal or international law. International lawyers; comparative lawyers; and constitutional lawyers interested in the question of sovereignty and Crown prerogative, and in conflict of laws.
As one would expect the author's treatment of these complex subjects is rigorously analytical..no one concerned with this area of law could fail to find the critical approach adopted in the book intellectually stimulating..anyone who has working knowledge of the leading cases will find it fascinating * British Yearbook of International Law *
