International Law Studies

Collected Papers: Volume Two

Anthony D'amato

`Reader beware. You are about to be challenged and drawn into a realm of unorthodox ideas, often stated provocatively ...' (From the Foreword).
The field of international law is blessed with a broad range of high quality scholarship. But a truly fresh approach and real, original ideas always provide a welcome addition. Any serious player in the international law world will seek out these rare challenges to classic scholarship. International Law Studies is one of these unique works.
In this second volume of collected papers, the author addresses: - environmental law, - human rights, - international criminal law, - foreign relations law, - the intersection of political science and international law, and - the study and practice of international law. The insightful and probing nature of the author's wholly new analysis of these critical topics will intrigue any international law scholar or practitioner. To miss International Law Studies is to shut out one of the most thought-provoking voices in the field.
This is the second volume in a series of collected papers.

Anthony D'amato

In Anthony D'Amato's writing, two passions merge: law and language. His eloquence-and hence the sheer readability of his writing-is virtually a byword among teachers and students alike. This "introduction to law" is far from basic in its coverage, yet it never becomes mired in tedious detail or lost in impenetrable fog. It is perhaps the only reader-friendly book available today that truly clarifies the deep and basic concepts of law in general, and American law in particular.

The Alien Tort Claims Act is virtually unique in U.S. legislation for its clear recognition of international human rights. This unparalleled collection of essays, the only extensive work on the Act, draws together the best analyses and interpretations written to date, under the editorship of two of America’s most untraditional and imaginative theorists of international law, and makes a formidable case for the Alien Tort Claims Act as a powerful tool for all lawyers, regardless of specialization. The book includes an exhaustive annotated bibliography.
