'Nearly 25 years has passed since the publication of the first edition of this book. This is a much-anticipated new edition, reconceived, reorganized and updated by the author...This is an exceptionally interesting and useful volume, written by a wise and experienced lawyer with a substantial knowledge of US foreign policy and international affairs in general. The material is extremely carefully selected, the judgements are clear, distinctly formulated and strongly supported by documented evidence...The book is also written with literary grace, making it enjoyable reading not only for experts but also anyone wanting to understand how US foreign policy is made. For academics, for foreign policy practitioners and for students, the author's scholarly notes, displaying a unique gathering of judicial opinion on foreign affairs, are indispenable.'
'it is the only work in its subject area. It follows its predecessor in giving a comprehensive, analytical and objective survey of the American Constitution as it impinges on foreign affairs...ir provides tables and cases and treaties, together with an expremely thorough index. Not to mention LOTS of endnotes.'
..."I would unhesitatingly recommend this book to any serious inquirer into the constitutional law of foreign relations...This is a great work of constitutional law. Henkin's book is consistently well-reasoned and persuasive...The whole work bears the mark of a perfectionist. A great deal of effort indeed must have been put into creating the structure of this book...Henkin's lean prose makes him a fine communicator...The considerable impacy of this book is not limited to the academy, Its influence extends farther afield...I agree wholeheartedly with all who have praised this book. I would also express the hope that publication of this book by Oxford University Press will gain it international recognition matching the national recognition it has attained in the United States."
