Cummins, Sally J. and David P. Stewart, Editors. Digest of United States Practice in International Law, 2001. Washington, D.C.: International Law Institute, 2001. 1032 pp. Cloth. New. $95. * The latest annual volume from the ILI. 2001 was truly a watershed year in international law. Issues concerning the use of force, self-defense and counter-terrorism posed novel challenges to humanitarian law, the law of war and international criminal law. As in past Digests, it draws upon treaties, executive agreements, legislation, federal regulations, federal court decisions, testimony, statements before congressional and international bodies and diplomatic internal memoranda. Several chapters were re-ordered in this volume. It also contains three new chapters that address educational and cultural affairs, international conflict resolution and America's response to terrorist attacks.
