This collection of essays evaluates the policy of the United States concerning international law, especially a number of treaties and conventions. The book discusses U.S. policy regarding the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM), the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the Kyoto Protocol, as well as U.S. reluctance to accept the International Criminal Court (ICC). Updated, and based on a joint report by the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research and the Lawyers' Committee on Nuclear Policy, the book examines the treaties with an emphasis on international stability and environmental protection. Additionally, the book gives policy recommendations for each treaty or convention analyzed, in most cases advocating a reversal of U.S. policy.
