About the Book

This book presents a comprehensive account of the Supreme Court's use of international law from the 1790s to the present. The book does not address every passing reference to international law, but it covers all the lines of cases in which international law has played a material role. Few aspects of the Court's international law doctrine remain the same in the twenty-first century as they were two hundred years ago. This book also provides and account of what changed in the Supreme Court's international law doctrine, and when those changes occured.
