This groundbreaking book deals with problems encountered by the United States in complying with international treaty obligations. It examines the ways in which the American constitutional system sometimes adapts to and sometimes erects barriers against the new system of global solutions to global problems and investigates the resulting challenges on a treaty-by-treaty basis with special attention to such areas as human rights and disarmament.
