I am pleased to have been one of the contributors to the forthcoming volume that provides the occasion for the present panel.' David Sloss and his co-editors, William Dodge and Michael Ramsey, deserve congratulations for coming up with a concept for a much-needed research project, for assembling a group of scholars from different disciplines, for organizing an authors' conference that was a model of collaborative interaction, and for exemplary editing of the papers. The volume examines an astounding number of cases involving international law at the Supreme Court and should become an indispensable reference for lawyers, scholars, and judges. The contributors who are law professors examine these cases from the point of view of international law, U.S. constitutional law, legal history, and the comparative law of foreign relations. Those who specialize in history (who in some instances are also experts in international or constitutional law, and in other instances bring an outsider's perspective) have located the developments under consideration in the broad sweep of U.S. history and world history.
