Foreign Court Judgments and the United States Legal System, edited by Paul B. Stephan, gathers essays from leading thinkers, scholars and practitioners in international law to address the recognition and enforcement of foreign court judgments in the United States legal system. Divided into two Parts entitled Existing Doctrine and the Fourth Restatement, and Statutory Reform of the Law of Recognition and Enforcement, the volume collects a diverse range of topics, including a defense of territorial sovereignty, a consideration of its undergirding doctrine of refusal to recognize or enforce foreign penal and revenue judgments, and an examination of the role of the Supreme Court as the ultimate expositor and interpreter of a federal statute, among many others.

Foreign Court Judgments and the United States Legal System offers a nuanced and thorough collection of analyses from experts in the field regarding a multifarious and often contentious aspect of international law.
