In The Limits of International Law, Goldsmith and Posner argue that international law matters, but that it is less powerful than public officials, legal experts, and the media believe. International law, they contend, is simply a product of states pursuing their interests on the international stage.

"refreshing and timely"The Weekly Standard

"...a valuable contribution to international relations and a useful book for lawmakers and laymen alike."The Weekly Standard

"Scholars have long debated why and when states comply with international law; one widely held view is that states do so out of a sense of moral obligation or a desire for legitimacy. This elegantly argued book... offers a simpler and more instrumental explanation: states agree to and follow international law only when it is in their national self-interest."Foreign Affairs

"Jack L. Goldsmith and Eric A. Posner boldly and ambitiously set out to answer a host of traditional questions posed by critics and advocates of international law.... As the central theme, the single most distinctive character of the book is the employment of rational choice theory as it relates to international law.... The creativity displayed here should now whet the appetite of other legal scholars to approach the international law and politics relationship from

"[B]oldly and ambitiously set[s] out to answer a host of traditional questions posed by critics and advocates of international law."Law and Politics Book Review

"How much effect does international law actually have on how nations behave? Goldsmith and Posner ask trenchant questions and offer thought-provoking answers in a pioneering effort to address that question through the prism of rational choice theory. There will be a long and vigorous debate about the utility of their approach.

Their insistence that international legal obligations are equal part coincidence and rational state self-interest, nothing more, demands and will certainly get an answer. Equally important is their claim to be the heirs of Kennan and Morgenthau in
cautioning against the perils of what they perceive to be a new round of legalism-moralism. They have thus raised the political as much as the methodological stakes in what is likely to be a heated and timely debate."Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs,
Princeton University

"Jack Goldsmith and Eric Posner have written a compelling study which provides an elegant analytic framework for understanding when international law matters and when it does not. Goldsmith and Posner show that some kinds of international law are very consequential while others are not. After this st...
