The second, revised edition of International Law and U.S. Foreign Policy deals with America's most critical international problems, including new chapters on U.S. immigration policy; U.S. oil policy; and terrorism, unlawful detainees, and torture. More broadly, this comprehensive text examines the relationship between international law and important foreign policy decisions, including international criminal tribunals, the human environment and climate change, anti-personnel land mines, arms control and disarmament, the Middle East peace process, and the Iraq crisis from 2002-2006. These issues are presented with the aid of case studies, statutes, international agreements, and the views of leading scholars and jurists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This revised edition of an acclaimed textbook on international law and foreign policy retains its gold standard of fairness and objectivity. Few areas of politics are as controversial as international politics, and few areas of law are contested as international law... He [Professor Christol] offers to the students and the general reader both sides of all of the major complex issues that are now confronting the Bush Administration... -- Anthony D'Amato, Leighton Professor of Law, Northwestern University
This book offers readers a lively examination of current conflicts between international law and U.S foreign policy as well as constitutional separation of powers issues...Readers will gain new insight into legal and political issues raised by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as the prosecution of Saddam Hussein....I really think it's an excellent text book and if I hadn't retired from teaching at least 10 years ago I would have made it mandatory for all students to study this important work by Professor Christol. Now it goes on my shelf as an excellent reference source for the many important topics covered. Congratulations. -- Benjamin B. Ferencz, A Senior Prosecutor at the Nuremburg War Crimes Tribunal
Professor Christol's selection of new topics for this second edition bespeaks his wisdom in emphasizing what is most important to the American public and the national agenda. It is a really good book for our times. Analyses and discussion questions respond insightfully to what sadly has been missing from much of the media's coverage of these issues, namely, clear and cogent legal commentary, linked with policy, to the benefit of students and non-students alike. -- James A. Nafziger, Thomas B. Stoel Professor of Law, College of Law, Williamette University
Praise for the First Edition: This timely book by international lawyer Christol provides a probing legal dissection and analysis of current US froeign policy viewed through the optic of the unilateralist and multilateralist approaches that have traditionally formed the foundation of the conduct of U.S. foreign affairs....This volume is recommended for all scholarly collections in international affairs. Summing Up: RECOMMENDED. Upper-divison undergraduates and above.... -- D. Ettinger, George Washington University * CHOICE *
Because of its broad appeal, it should be the supplement for courses addressing the use of force, diplomacy, international relations, or political/military science...The chapters include fresh materials on the scope of International Law; U.S. foreign policy; U.S. compliance with treaty obligations; terrorism; international tribunals; the enviroment; arms control; immigration; the Middle East, Iraq; oil policy; and enemy combatants...it is clearly written, powerfully articulated, and extremely well documented-both in terms of its analytical updates and fresh bibliographical resources. * American Society of International Law *
International Law and Foreign Policy is a most informative book for both students and interested members of the public. The book covers the traditional subjects of international law as well as more recent topics, including international criminal trials, terrorism, immigration, torture and enviromental law... I highly recommend this book. -- Dan Caldwell, Pepperdine University
Praise for the First Edition: This timely book by international lawyer Christol provides a probing legal dissection and analysis of current US froeign policy viewed through the optic of the unilateralist and multilateralist approaches that have traditionally formed the foundation of the conduct of U.S. foreign affairs....This volume is recommended for all scholarly collections in international affairs.
