Abstract

The publication of the second printed edition of The Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law (MPEPIL) by Oxford University Press in spring 2012 can be regarded as a remarkable event in the academia of public international law. This book review provides a brief summary of the notable features of this renowned encyclopedia. It reveals that the second edition not only updates most of the traditional topics of public international law in its first edition but also keeps pace with the recent development of public international law by adding hundreds of newly written entries. The variety of the contributors from all over the world also ensures that the second edition of the MPEPIL fully represents the global scholarship of public international law. Moreover, the research-friendly feature and its comprehensive bibliography make the second edition of the MPEPIL an indispensable learning resource for public international students and scholars.
