Oppenheim's major work, first published in 1905-6, and repeatedly re-edited is "still highly authoritative. According to the Oxford Companion to Law, "[Oppenheim] was a positivist who found international law in custom, international decisions and quasi-legislation" (904). "Oppenheim's treatise...is an outstanding work on international law not only from the point of view of its content, scope, authoritativeness and up-to-date character, but from the point of view of its adaptability and usefulness for the purpose of study and consultation.": V.R.I, Law Quarterly Review (1922) 52: 139-140.
