Sean D. Murphy's wide-ranging and in-depth survey of United States practice in international law 1999-2001 draws upon the statements and actions of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the US Government to examine its involvement across a range of areas. These include diplomatic and consular relations, jurisdiction and immunities, state responsibility and liability, international organizations, and human rights. Available for the first time in one compendium, this summary of the most salient issues (including the Kosovo conflict and the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon) will be a central resource on US practice in international law. It contains extracts from hard-to-find documents, generous citations to relevant sources, tables of cases and treaties, and detailed index. Revealing international law in the making, this essential tool for researchers and practitioners is the first in a series of books capturing the international law practice of a global player.
