`Teachers and students of international law, have been known to refer to "Brierly's Law of Nations" as their "favourite law book" and who can blame them? Picking up for the first time, you find that it immediately attracts. It is compact, concise and erudite.' Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
