A leading casebook on foreign relations law, authored by widely cited scholars who also have pertinent government experience, Foreign Relations Law: Cases and Materials, Eighth Edition examines the law that regulates how the United States interacts with other nations and with international institutions, and how it applies international law within its legal system. The book offers a compelling mix of cases, statutes, and executive branch materials, as well as extensive notes and questions and discussion of relevant historical background and scholarship. These materials guide students through both longstanding as well as cutting-edge issues of constitutional law, statutory interpretation, administrative law, and federal jurisdiction as they relate to the conduct of U.S. foreign relations.

New to the Eighth Edition:

  • A new section on economic sanctions, reflecting the growing significance of this aspect of U.S. foreign policy
  • Expanded discussion of executive authority relating to diplomacy
  • A new section on state international agreements
  • More streamlined coverage of both the Alien Tort Statute and the War on Terror as a result of developments since the last edition
  • Updated notes and questions throughout the book to take account of recent cases, statutes, Executive Branch actions, and scholarship
Benefits for instructors and students:
  • Clear and logical progression of the materials, starting with the powers of government institutions and then proceeding to specific substantive topics
  • Coverage of both cutting-edge legal developments and relevant historical background
  • Integration of leading scholarship into the notes and questions rather than in long excerpts of secondary materials
  • Balanced presentation of controversial topics, with probing questions to consider in class discussions
  • Combination of theoretical analysis with practical insights from real-world examples
