From the Publisher"A lucid modern analysis of the perennial great question about international law: international it is, but is it law? That question recently has been pressed with acerbic pertinacity; Professor O'Connell answers with informed vigor."
—Stephen M. Schwebel, President of the International Court of Justice (1997-2000)
"Professor Mary Ellen O'Connell adds her fresh views and clear-eyed vision to the battle to have America take international law seriously. Concomitantly, her message points to the way a new administration in Washington could hope to have the world take America's leadership seriously."
—Thomas Franck, Murry and Ida Becker Professor of Law Emeritus, New York University School of Law and co-author of The Law and Practice of the United Nations (OUP 2007)
"A brave, and sadly necessary, affirmation that the Rule of Law is an essential precondition for civilised life, even in nations whose leaders may think that they have no immediate need for it."
—Vaughn Lowe, Chichele Professor of Public International Law, All Souls College, Oxford University and author of International Law (OUP 2007)
"The Power and Purpose of International Law is a critical response to the dismissive attitude adopted by the Bush administration, neo-conservatives, and some US writers and scholars-such as Goldsmith as Posner-towards international law"
—Carlo Focarelli, University of Peruggia and LUISS University of Rome, Italy
