"A welcome addition to the canon of international law scholarship. Libraries and researchers alike will find the footnotes alone make America and the Law of Nations 1776-1939
worth adding to their collections."-AAAL Spectrum
"Janis's important new book reminds us that an effective law of nations requires a commitment on the part of idealistic men and women who have the will and energy to resolve the problems and overcome the challenges."
--John F. Murphy, Villanova University
