Abstract:

"International Law and the Future of Freedom provides readers with a unique approach to the problem of democracy deficit in the international legal system as a whole. Few international law books give as much attention to, or are as well-informed about, how international law concretely affects actual governance. Combining his unparalleled institutional knowledge and his bold imagination, John Barton has produced a lucid synthesis of a wide array of controversial issues relevant to today's international law community."--Guyora Binder, SUNY Distinguished Professor, Vice Dean for Research and Faculty Development, SUNY Buffalo Law School.

International Law and the Future of Freedom is the late John Barton's exploration into ways to protect our freedoms in the new global international order. The book draws from the author's mastery of international trade, technology, and financial law, as well as from a wide array of other legal issues, from espionage law, to international criminal law, to human rights law. It defines the need to assert our freedoms, and the appropriate international scopes of our freedoms in the context of the three central issues that our global system must resolve: the balance between security and freedom, the balance between economic equity and opportunity, and the balance between community and religious freedom. --Book Jacket.
