Demonstrating to what extent the United States has related its treaties to the standard known as international law, this book shows that the principle of legality in international relations may be strengthened through treaty acknowledgment of a wider, pre-existing body of law, but that this method is not a substitute for constructive development of international law. Robert Wilson also suggests that the treaty uses of international law will become more meaningful with the acceptance of obligatory adjudication for disputes over the interpretation of treaties.
