Sources of State Practice in International Law is the true heir to Myers’ 1922 classic Manual of Collections of Treaties. It is the only work that carries the thoroughness and scholarship of Myers into the United Nations era and on to today’s new world order.

Published in a looseleaf format so that additional jurisdictions can be added and to insure it is always up to date, Sources of State Practice in International Law is organized by country, with a lengthy additional chapter covering multijurisdictional sources. Each chapter describes relevant web sites as well as traditional bibliographic materials, in recognition of the undeniable fact that the Internet is rapidly becoming the dominant medium in which treaties and other international legal instruments are to be found.

The first release includes fully up-to-date documentation of state practice in international law in the following fourteen countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, U.K., United States, as well as an annotated list of multijurisdictional collections arranged by subject.

The authors provide references not only to treaty collections but also to sources of diplomatic documentation and other materials that shed light on customary state practice in international law. References to yearbooks and digests are also included.

Every listing offers essential details of publication and/or online accessibility, as well as a brief note elucidating important considerations in the item’s practical application. These descriptions, even for items catalogued in Myers or the UN List, are in most cases the most detailed bibliographic descriptions available in any legal source.

Each chapter, compiled by an expert in the particular country’s practice in international law, opens with a detailed introduction that locates the regime in question in the past and present context of international relations and international law, discusses issues of treaty succession, and describes the process of treaty ratification and implementation. This volume describes the procedures governing the transfer of sentenced foreign nationals from the United States to serve the remainder of their sentences in their native countries, and of United States nationals sentenced in foreign countries to serve the remainder of their sentences in the United States.

It discusses the statutory and treaty framework regulating the transfer of sentenced persons to and from the United States, as well as the case law interpreting those statutes and treaties. Appendices contain United States statutes and regulations, U.S. Department of Justice Manual materials, and all treaties governing the transfer of prisoners to and from the United States.
