London: Routledge, 2002. Pp. ix, 278. For centuries, the attribution of territory and the determination of boundaries has been one of the major threats to world peace and stability. These thorny and divisive issues, with their potential for violence, are of critical importance in the context of the dissolution of a state or secession by a group within a state. In The Break-up of Yugoslavia and International Law, Peter Radan, a senior lecturer at Macquarie University in New South Wales Australia, tackles the difficult question of boundary determination through a critical analysis of a recent precedent, namely the break-up of the former Yugoslavia.
