‘Curt Bradley has collected some of the most influential scholarship, representing diverse perspectives, on US foreign relations law. The compilation should both remind experts of old classics and give newcomers a thoughtfully curated introduction to the doctrines, theories, and debates that define this area of US law. It is a very welcome addition to the scene, by one of the field's leading lights.’
