Abstract

Curtis Bradley’s book, International Law in the U.S. Legal System, provides a skillful description of its topic in a much-needed contribution to several fields of law. This short review provides an overview of the book, notes its many strengths, and points out a few minor weaknesses in coverage. It concludes by offering some thoughts on an issue largely unaddressed by Bradley: how to evaluate as a normative matter the controversial doctrinal developments he describes.

Keywords: international law, international law in domestic courts, foreign relations, book review, Alien Tort Statute, Kiobel, Medellin
