Reviews of Karen J. Alter's new book The New Terrain of International Law: Courts, Politics, Rights

Karen Alter’s book The New Terrain of International Law: Courts, Politics, Rights (Princeton University Press 2014) has been reviewed in several distinguished journals as well as on websites and blogs within the field.

"The New Terrain of International Law provides the most sophisticated account of how 'new style' international courts alter politics by reducing the monopoly power of governments to determine what the law requires. If you can read only one book on how international courts affect the politics of international law, this is the one to read."
Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University
