450 Austrian Review of International and European Law inevitable to bypass the parliament by governing in closed circles and specialized committees without actually arguing in favour of a strong executive. On the contrary, he even lamented that it thereby lost its original foundation and purpose. However, Schmitt and his views on (constitutional) law in times of crisis – or their reception at least – had a renaissance in the wake of 9/11. During these times, constitutionalism and the idea of a strong Congress was seen as an impediment to the need for effective and decisive actions. Ohlin however convincingly argues how a strong and active parliament not only can function better than a nefarious strong man in times of crisis but also that the thought of the need for a strong executive is misleading in the ﬁ rst place. In sum, reading The Assault on International Law provides a dramatic insight into the legal, academic, and – ultimately – political battles over the place of international law in US domestic law and the US conceptualization of sovereignty. For those with a particular fondness for international law, it reads like a thriller – a pretty good one, for that matter.
