"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, author 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
