Describes the constitutional law of foreign affairs, derived from the historical understanding of the Constitution's text. This book examines foreign affairs controversies, such as the role of the president and Congress, and shows how the words, structure, and context of the Constitution can resolve pivotal court cases and leading modern disputes.


Michael D. Ramsey is Professor of Law, University of San Diego School of Law.

Texte du rabat

The Constitution, Ramsey concludes, does not make any branch of government the ultimate decision maker in foreign affairs, but rather divides authority among multiple independent power centres.
