ON THE LAW OF NATIONS. By Daniel Patrick Moynihan.t Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1990. Pp. x, 211. $22.50. (Hardbound).
Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Democrat from New York, former Harvard professor, former bureaucrat, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, writes most often about events and problems with which he and we are currently involved. Repeatedly it seems that by the time a policy question reaches center stage, Moynihan has written a book on the subject. On the Law of Nations appeared last fall in time for the Gulf crisis, and the new U.N. role, the new world order (i.e., in time for this season's discussions of international law and the use of force). But the opinions expressed in this book are not as fashionable as they seemed before the Gulf War.
