This work provides a forum for leading international lawyers to address a broad range of intellectual challenges concerning the contribution of African states and peoples to international law. Now in paperback, the book addresses orthodox topics of international law - such as jurisdiction and intervention - from an African perspective. It asks whether, in each case, the African perspective is unique or affirms existing arrangements of international law. Political interest in Africa has undergone a global revival, and the Organization of African Unity has been transformed into the African Union. Infrastructural challenges, along with those taking place in regional contexts, have effectively mapped a new politico-legal landscape for Africa. This, and more, is explored in the book, and the key normative questions are addressed in a series of essays by leading Africanist scholars.
