This Restatement consists of international law as it applies to the United States, and domestic law that has substantial impact on the foreign relations of the United States or has other important international consequences. For the most part, the domestic component of the law restated in the book is federal law, deriving mainly from the Constitution, acts of Congress, and judicial decisions. The international law restated stems largely from customary international law and international agreements to which the United States is a party.

Until 1950, U.S. treaties appeared regularly in U.S. Statutes at Large. Beginning in 1950, treaties and executive agreements have been published in a chronological series called United States Treaties and Other International Agreements (UST). UST includes the text of each treaty in the languages of the signatories. Although several volumes are typically published each year, at present UST is well-behind schedule in publishing the most-current treaty actions of the United States. HeinOnline includes all published volumes of the UST series.
The first official publication of U.S. treaties and international agreements is through the Treaties and Other International Acts Series (TIAS), which is a series of consecutively numbered, individually paginated pamphlets containing the texts of agreements in English and other official languages of the agreement. After appearing in TIAS in slip form, U.S. treaties and international agreements are published in bound volumes of United States Treaties and Other International Agreements.
