The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Foreign Relations Law

The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Foreign Relations Law

Curtis A. Bradley of Duke Law has recently completed work as editor of The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Foreign Relations Law. Professor Bradley is the William Van Alstyne Professor of Law at Duke Law School, where he is a co-director of the law school's Center for International and Comparative Law. He also served as Reporter for the Restatement of the Law Fourth, The Foreign Relations Law of the United States (Treaties). Published by Oxford University Press, the Handbook seeks to lay the groundwork for the relatively new field of comparative foreign relations law.

From the publisher:

Comparative foreign relations law compares and contrasts how nations, and also supranational entities (for example, the European Union), structure their decisions about matters such as entering into and exiting from international agreements, engaging with international institutions, and using military force, as well as how they incorporate treaties and customary international law into their domestic legal systems. The legal materials that make up a nation's foreign relations law can include constitutional law, statutory law, administrative law, and judicial precedent, among other areas.

This book consists of 46 chapters, written by leading authors from around the world. Some of the chapters are empirically focused, others are theoretical, and still others contain in-depth case studies. In addition to being an invaluable resource for scholars working in this area, the book should be of interest to a wide range of lawyers, judges, and law students.
