Scranton, PA, June 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Historian and author Charles Quince today announced the release of his new public international law book The Persistent Objector and Customary International Law, published by Outskirts Press. This insightful guide combines doctrinal, empirical, practical and historical analyses of these two aspects of international law and offers viable strategies for their harmonious global implementation.
Recognizing that if a norm becomes established as a general rule of international law and therefore obligates all states that have not opposed it, Quince’s new work shows how the persistent objector law is crucial for states to preserve their sovereignty when they feel it has been threatened by the custom in question.
Quince’s comprehensive review of all the pertinent facets of these two fundamentals of international law is done through an in-depth analysis of historic court cases as well as through a careful review of the theories put forth by prominent legal scholars. His book is unique because it not only concentrates on the institutional development of these two principles, it also gives new insight into the norms and guiding principles that are associated with them.
The Persistent Objector and Customary International Law also suggests innovative implementation strategies for bringing these two, sometimes apparently opposing theories into a singular cohesive legal force no longer subject to the misinterpretation that they have often been prone to.
Quince has provided his readers with an extensive bibliography that includes both primary and additional sources. He also includes a comprehensive list of suggested ancillary reading material.
The Persistent Objector and Customary International Law is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
