'Nationality and Statelessness under International Law provides a careful analysis of what it means to be stateless, the causes of statelessness, and how international law has historically dealt with the problem. Calling on authors who possess extensive experience in international law, research, and practice, the book provides insights as to how international law can best address and prevent the problem of statelessness ... Moreover, the book takes an accessible, practical approach to explaining the international legal framework and provides solutions for preventing and addressing the problem of statelessness. The book would be a suitable resource for a broad range of readers wanting to learn more about this evolving area of international law. Scholars, researchers, practitioners, instructors, and students would all find it to be an edifying source of information.' David S. Weissbrodt and Kurt A. Meyer, Human Rights Quarterly
