A panel of the American Society of International Law puts forward recommendations concerning the roles of Congress and the President in the conduct of foreign policy. Like the political debate over the War Powers Act (1973), this book focuses on secrecy, public participation, executive agreements and treaties, and the power to wage war. Since public debate has now shifted focus, the topic is no longer so timely, but the discussion does summarize some major unresolved issues.
