Opinio Juris Book Discussion: Andrew Guzman, “How International Law Works”

by Peggy McGuinness

The fun continues at Opinio Juris next week, February 11-14, as we host an online discussion of Professor Andrew Guzman’s book, How International Law Works, which has just been published by Oxford University Press. Professor Guzman teaches at UC-Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law, where he directs the International Legal Studies Program. Guzman is a prolific scholar and this book makes an important contribution to international law theory by deploying the tools of rational choice to explain how and why international law affects the behavior of states. Professor Guzman will post an introduction to his claims in the book on Monday, to be followed by commentary by Jeff Dunoff (Temple), Kal Raustiala (UCLA) and Alex Geisinger (Drexel). Some of the OJ regulars will be joining in the discussion. We welcome comments from our readers as well.

If you would like to order a copy of the book, you can do so here at the OUP website (keeping in mind that ASIL members get a discount!).
