a must-have for everyone ready to go beyond the mere application of the law. ... the Oxford Handbook's chapters certainly provide a valuable reading experience. * Ralph Janik, Austrian Review of International and European Law *
For scholars and law students as well as practitioners, this volume of over a thousand pages, with its useful overview of current thinking on the theory of international law, is definitely a must-read and a worthy addition to the well-stocked professional library. * Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers *
A composite reading of the statist, naturalist, and transnational approaches in the Handbook lead to a counter-intuitive conclusion that international economic law is the mother of public international law. The Handbook offers us the timely opportunity of confirming our convictions as well as hearing voices that we ignore because of our own professional preoccupations and epistemological locations. * Prabhakar Singh, Jindal Global Law School, The European Journal of International Law *
