International Law Bestsellers

by Roger Alford

If you go to Amazon and do a seach for “international law” and sort by “bestselling” you can quickly get a sense of what the public is buying in the field of international law. It appears the rankings change dramatically from day-to-day, (and the ranking function does not work perfectly) so this is just a snapshot.
