International Economic Sanctions: Improving The Haphazard U.S. Legal Regime

By Barry E. Carter

Cambridge University Press, 1988, 290 pp.

This valuable book provides a meticulous account of the president's very diverse powers to control economic transactions for foreign policy purposes. Analyzing practice and politics as well as law, Professor Carter of Georgetown also puts forward thoughtful suggestions for improving the somewhat haphazard arrangements now in use.
