In memory of Louis Henkin, who died last month in New York, I recently took to the archives, to see whether any of his work had found its way into the NYU Journal of International Law and Politics. While Henkin’s byline never appeared in any of JILP’s forty-two volumes, his work nevertheless left a mark on our pages.
In the seventh volume of JILP, a review of Henkin’s Foreign Affairs and the Constitution recognized the supreme importance of this work to the field of U.S. foreign relations law. (7 N.Y.U. J. Int’l L. & Pol. 203.) Henkin, Stanley Futterman wrote, spoke with “the natural modesty and courage of the true teacher.” But our reviewer soon takes a more critical stance in light of Henkin’s discussion of Vietnam.
