The present paper is confined to a discussion from an American point of view of the application of the criminal law of a country to acts committed by foreigners outside the territorial limits of the country concerned. It will include a statement of the prevailing theories adopted by American courts and jurists, accompanied by a brief summary of typical cases decided by American Courts, and a critical analysis of these theories and of their application in American judicial opinions.
