Abstract

Reviewed by The book, International Law - A South African Perspective, provides an introduction to the rules and principles of international law. In its analysis of the law it takes account of both international and South African sources of international law. The book is comprised of twenty chapters. In chapter 1 it defines international law and discusses the history, sources, the enforcement and the old question of whether international law is law or not. While acknowledging that entities other than States participate in the contemporary international legal order, it emphasizes that States and intergovernmental organizations are the main actors in the international community and the only entities with true international personality and the principal creators of rules of international law. In chapter 2 the book focuses on South Africa and International Law. It argues that International law is the product of the European State system that came into being in the Sixteenth Century. Until the Nineteenth Century it was in reality a European law of nations. This system of law, rooted in conventions of European superiority, accorded little recognition to the political organizations of Africa, whatever their level of sophistication. The chapter also examines the role South Africa
