This book is exceptionally high on scholarship even though some of the author's conclusions are debatable respecting the extent to which the United States Constitution and laws are subject to so-called "international law" (much of which is contrary to "the law of nations" referenced at Article I, Section 8, Clause 10 of the U.S. Constitution). But notwithstanding that some of the author's conclusions are debatable, the scholarship is so high as to make this book required reading (and also an essential reference source) for anyone interested in the foreign affairs powers in the U.S. Constitution. The scholarship and legal citations contained in many of the footnotes is so exceptional as to make just the footnotes themselves well-worth the cost of this book. ( )

This is a new edition of the author's "classic" book, long since out of print. Published originally in 1972 it rapidly established itself as the leading work dealing with mysteries of the US constitutional system as it affects US foreign relations. The new edition has been reconceived, reorganized and completely updated, but in essence it remains a succinct and highly readable account of a subject which is important not only in the US, but throughout the world.
