Portada
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1997 M04 23 - 370 páginas
International law is not static; it develops constantly. Namibia is classic case, illustrating the changing law of nations. "International" "Law and the Protection of Namibia's Territorial Integrity: Boundaries" "and Territorial Claims" demonstrates this with an analysis of the legal and factual elements present in the creation, boundaries and territorial claims of Namibia, and the determinations of the League of Nations and the political organs of the United Nations which developed and clarified the rules of international law. Nambia's unique international status and diplomatic history requires the consideration of a large number of different topics within public international law. Some of these issues are very complex and technical, as they involve major questions of international law and politics. Through the use of primary sources, case law, state practice and the opinions of eminent jurists, the author addresses these challenging and revealing issues. Anyone interested in public international law, international relations, political science, history, or geography will appreciate the way that this work covers the interesting and informative changes in this revealing nation.
