Summary
International Law has developed dramatically during the past few decades alongside numerous international institutions. This book sheds new light on traditional elements of international law and serves as an introduction to the new law and multilateral institutions concerned with issues such as global security, economic development, environmental protection, and self-determination. The central purpose of the book, however, is not simply to inform the reader about recent developments, but to attempt a critique of their fairness. To that end, the author develops a theory of fairness that draws on historical, philosophical, and sociological sources. Within the concept of fairness, the author contends that developed notions of justice and legitimacy reflect society's ambiguities regarding the right balance between change and order
