New Book: The Assault on International Law

Assault on International LawWhy comply with it when there is no world government to enforce it? That is the conceptual riddle of international law.

The United States has a long history of skepticism towards international law and in the 21st Century has drifted away from international institutions like the International Criminal Court and the United Nations. In the new book The Assault on International Law, author Jens Ohlin focuses on law professors he sees as working against international law’s philosophical foundations, including Eric Posner, Jack Goldsmith, Adrian Vermeule, and John Yoo. In contrast, Ohlin provides an alternate vision of international law based on a theory of human rationality.
