Increasingly, matters of direct concern to the American public are being regulated by international treaty regimes. Do these new international treaty regimes pose a challenge to the US constitutional order? In particular, how do treaty-based obligations interfere with property rights, freedom of expression, and the decentralisation of power in the federal system? This book deals with problems encountered by the United States, as a federal system. In complying with international treaty obligations at this period of renewed interest in state rights. It examines the ways in which the American constitutional system sometimes adapts to and sometimes erects barriers against the new system of global solutions to global problems. It investigates the resulting challenges of a treaty-by-treaty basis with special attention to such areas as human rights and disarmament.
