The Alien Tort Claims Act
The Alien Tort Claims Act is virtually unique in U.S. legislation for its clear recognition of international human rights. This unparalleled collection of essays, the only extensive work on the Act, draws together the best analyses and interpretations written to date, under the editorship of two of America’s most untraditional and imaginative theorists of international law, and makes a formidable case for the Alien Tort Claims Act as a powerful tool for all lawyers, regardless of specialization. The book includes an exhaustive annotated bibliography.
