Basic Documents in International Law draws together all of the most important documents needed for the study of international law. Collated by Ian Brownlie, a worldwide expert in the field, this book has provided students and practitioners with the most essential instruments giving a thorough grounding in this diverse and fascinating field of law.

This sixth edition incorporates all key new documents within the field since the publication of the fifth edition in 2002, including the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Since the first edition appeared in 1967, this collection of basic texts has become an established aid both to the practicing lawyer using international law materials, and to the student of international law as a complement to existing course books. As the title states, the objective of the collection has always been to provide readers with the essential, basic documents, and this edition continues to do so, building on the aims and reputation established over the last 40 years.
