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.
Carl Q. Christol is Distinguished Emeritus Professor at the University of Southern California. Professor Christol holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and an LL.B. from Yale Law School. He has held the Stockton Chair of International Law at the U. S. Naval War College.
