Summary: A leading casebook in foreign relations, Foreign Relations Law: Cases and Examples, examines the constitutional and statutory law that regulates the conduct of contemporary U.S. foreign relations. Using a compelling mix of case and noncase materials, Bradley and Goldsmith focus on U.S. affairs abroad and international cases in which the U.S. exercises jurisdiction. Its extensive coverage of contemporary legal controversies and the grey areas between international and ...show more domestic affairs make this casebook a perennial favorite.

The Fourth Edition has been updated to include the resounding effects the "war on terror" is having on all aspects of foreign relations policy and the laws relating to detention, interrogation, surveillance, state secrets, habeas corpus and target killing. The impacts of recent events, such as U.S. military involvement in Libya, are given thorough treatment. New court cases affecting habeas corpus and non-U.S. citizens, the president's authority to detain alleged terrorists, and immunity for foreign officials in civil suits are also included. In addition, there is new section on legal regulation of CIA covert operations and clandestine operations by the U.S. military.
