International Law in the U.S. Legal System provides a wide-ranging overview of how international law intersects with the domestic legal system within the United States, and points out various unresolved issues and areas of controversy. Curtis Bradley covers all of the principal forms of international law: treaties, decisions and orders of international institutions, customary international law, and jus cogens norms. He also explores a number of issues that are implicated by the intersection of U.S. law and international law, such as foreign sovereign immunity, international human rights litigation, war powers, extradition, and extraterritoriality. This book highlights recent decisions and events relating to the topic (including decisions and events arising out of the war on terrorism), while also taking into account relevant historical materials, including materials relating to the U.S. Constitutional founding. Written by one of the most cited international law scholars in the United States, the book is a resource for lawyers, law students, legal scholars, and judges from around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This scrupulously fair and fully researched treatise is destined to be the standard reference for all issues involving the application of international law by U.S. courts. " * Paul Stephan, University of Virginia School of Law *
"This is an excellent primer on the application of international law in the United States, written by a leading U.S. scholar and former Counselor to the Legal Adviser of the State Department. Professor Bradley's objective discussions of the status of customary international law and the tensions between international law and U.S. constitutional law are especially illuminating. " * John B. Bellinger III, Partner, Arnold & Porter, and Former Legal Adviser to the State Department, 2005-2009 *
Over the past twenty years, Professor Curt Bradley has generated some of the most perceptive - and at times provocative - commentary on the relationship of international law to U.S. law, often presenting serious challenges to conventional assumptions and orthodoxy. This book synthesizes, integrates, and develops that commentary in a highly-readable and well-documented volume; a must-read for anyone who cares about whether and how one of the most powerful countries in the world internalizes international law." * Sean D. Murphy, Member, U.N. International Law Commission, Professor, George Washington University Law School *
International Law in the U.S. Legal System is admirably lucid, even-handed, and comprehensive * a most impressive accomplishment that encapsulates years of research and reflection. It will have a long shelf life *
That is a lot of ground to cover in 331 pages, but Bradley manages admirably to explore the contours and current state of play of each topic in a balanced and nonpartisan way. The book is well suited for the uninitiated, and the thorough references in the footnotes to the cases and the secondary literature make the book a good jumping-off point for further research. Good tables of cases and of legislation, and a thorough index, add to the book's utility as a work of reference." -Jonathan Pratter, Law Library Journal
