INTERNATIONAL LAW AND THE USE OF FORCE BY NATIONAL LIBERATION MOVEMENTS. By Heather Wilson.t New York- Oxford University Press, 1988. Pp. xi, 209. $45.00 (hardbound).

What is traditional international law on the jus ad bellum and thejus in bello ? How has self-determination evolved from a principle of political thought to a right in international law? Is the use of force by national liberation movements to secure the right of their peoples to selfdetermination legitimate? To what extent does the jus in bello apply in wars of national liberation? These questions are the focus of inquiry in Heather Wilson's recent book International Law and the Use of Force by National Liberation Movements.
