Consent and Commitment in the World Community: The Classification and Analysis of International Instruments
This work contains a practical methodology for classifying treaties and other international instruments. As the nation-state loses ground and the world citizen moves center-stage in international law, Douglas Johnston presents an empirically-premised and functionally-oriented system that serves not only to promote intellectual order, but also to satisfy the operational needs of making and shaping public policy. He proceeds with many examples and keen insights, successfully linking the international law of the past, present, and potential future of world order. Published under the auspices of the Procedural Aspects of International Law Institute (PAIL).
