The Oxford Handbook of International Law in Asia and the Pacific Simon Chesterman, Hisashi Owada and Ben Saul (eds) (Oxford University Press, 2019, 912 pp) Producing a book covering the topic of ‘international law in Asia and the Pacific’ is an ambitious undertaking. As mentioned in the opening paragr aph of The Oxford Handbook of International Law in Asia and the Pacific (‘Handbook’), the Asia-Pacific covers almost one third of the world’s land area, spans vast maritime areas across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and is home to around 60% of the world’s population.1 It is unsurprising that ‘no book has so far attempted to survey in depth the whole field of international law across Asia and the Pacific’.2 As the editors of the Handbook note, existing scholarship on international law in Asia and the Pacific is more circumscribed.
