In this book Shirley Scott articulates the considerable degree of continuity in the nature of US engagement with international law as it pursued a quest for defensive and offensive legal security, but cautions that the rise of China and the growing negotiating strength of leading developing countries mean that the US is likely to find it increasingly difficult to use the same set of techniques in the future.
