"This is an extremely interesting and well-written collection of essays on a very timely topic. Moreover, the contributors are some of the leading figures in the fields of international relations and international law. The book will certainly be read by scholars and practitioners and used as a supplemental text in courses, and it will appeal more broadly to people in America and abroad who are curious about the U.S. resistance to international treaties, international institutions, and foreign law."--Sean D. Murphy, George Washington University, author of "United States Practice in International Law, Volume 1: 1999-2001" and "Humanitarian Intervention: The United Nations in an Evolving World Order"
"This book was a genuine pleasure to read. Its individual chapters, which are consistently scholarly yet accessible, range in quality from very good to superb, with a high proportion on the top end of the range. And the volume as a whole is much more than the sum of these excellent parts. It can be read with profit not just by scholars and students but also by interested general readers."--Jack Donnelly, University of Denver, author of "Universal Human Rights in Theory and Practice"show more
