Sean D. Murphy is Associate Professor of Law at the George Washington University.

He also served as US agent to the Iran-US Claims Tribunal, arguing cases on behalf of the US government and providing advice to US nationals appearing before that tribunal.

Review of the hardback: Advance praise: 'This volume for the years 2002-2004 maintains and indeed raises to a new level of accomplishment the standard of scholarly and comprehensive presentation of U.S. practice foreshadowed in Professor Murphy's first volume for the years 1999-2001. By the range and depth of its coverage, it provides a riveting description of what is actually going on in international law nowadays, as well outside the United States as in. Current research will be immensely aided by it and it could well serve also as a casebook for teaching purposes. Once opened, it is compelling reading. The promptness of its appearance is much to be praised.' Professor Sir Elihu Lauterpacht CBE QC, University of Cambridge Review of the hardback: Advance praise: 'The first volume was received with great praise. The reception of this volume will be no less positive. Professor Murphy sets out United States practice - and reactions to that practice - in a comprehensive and balanced way. That practice is unmatched in its volume and its reach, and for no other State is as pervasive an international actor as is the United States. Whether that practice matches United States preachment is another question. But for that practice to be appraised, it must be made available. To that important end, Professor Murphy's renewed contribution is outstanding.' Stephen M. Schwebel, former President and Judge for the International Court of Justice Review of the hardback: Advance praise: 'If Sean Murphy's first volume is an important resource for serious scholars and practitioners of international law, this second volume is all but indispensable. It covers a period in which United States practice has often been at the heart of extraordinary ferment in international law, from its encounters with the jus as bellum and the jus in bello, to the increasing number of judicial and arbitral decisions on international trade and investment. With a new generation of lawyers and judges voicing dissatisfaction with the instrumentalism of some secondary sources and demanding hard evidence of state practice to establish the existence of international obligations, a coherent presentation of primary sources by an author with extraordinary breadth of knowledge, interest and experience takes on ever greater importance. That Professor Murphy has been willing and able to meet this need without the direct government support that characterized such efforts in the past (and still characterizes them in other countries) is a tribute to his consummate dedication and skill. We are all in his debt.' Bernard H. Oxman, Co-editor in Chief, , American Journal of International Law
