The Limits of International Law

The Limits of International Law

Jack L. Goldsmith and Eric A. Posner

  • Well-known and respected authors dispute the conventional legal understanding of international law—a powerful challenge to those who seek to use international law to solve the world's problems
  • Controversially claims that international law is too weak to improve the world in any significant way and that it primarily reflects the interests of powerful states
  • It integrates the study of international law with the realities of international politics, making it an ideal choice for study in both law schools and public policy graduate programs
