A case is made that so-called international law is law in name only and, moreover, that although bona fide international law is theoretically possible, it would not be desirable.

It was analytical and yet narrative, like a novel and a treatise rolled into one. i have never encountered anything like this, but now that I have, I'm wondering why other authors don't do it.
It was non-fiction; so there was only one 'character.'
The discussion of infelicitous utterances.
Almost, but I like to stop every 20 minutes or so to consider what I've heard. Also, some parts of it are like poetry, and I like to listen to them over and over.
This guy is brilliant. But his book covers are alienating.
its honesty, its rigor, the fact that it is true.
the discussion of stalin's government
i like the science fictions parts
it was witty.
a great introduction to a complex subject. this book will ruffle the feathers of a lot of bureaucrats, however.
yes, when i heard it, its lyricism was more impactful than when read
the combination of narrative and analytical elements
clear and unobtrusively folksy
it was very, very erudite. its ease and clarity was refreshing
kuczynski is better than russell
yes, because it was so forthright, and there was some semi-amusing semi-fictitious parts
the way the author used stories to make philosophical points interesting and clear
the discussion of stalin
ethics for the real world
lovely book, better than hedonism by the same author, which was not so good
already listened to it five times
it was narrative but illustrated very technical points in a delightfully inventive way
first performance of his
international law: the untold story
worth it, buy it
i like the discussion of meaningless assurances
i liked when he was talking about guyana
that there are different kinds of causation
i thought it was a little labored, but the narrator kept it light
Among books on Law, number 1. In general, top 50
only one character, so him, I guess
barely, a little long for that, but it did flow, and it was sort of witty
great book, makes important concepts very clear. way, way better than most political theory.
"gorgeous narration, beautiful reasoning"
analysis of law, no world mafia
the discussion of Finland and the mafia
better, cleaner. more pure
international law: the final analysis
brilliant, listened to it four times
