About this book

The right to individual and collective self-defense in international law and politics has always been a controversial issue. Using the example of how the US employs self-defense against Iraq, this book uncovers new dimensions, which lead to innovative and practical strategies and analysis.

Reviews

Ruchi Anand's fine book helps us think our way through this complex thicket of norms, ideas, practices, and scholarly debates. She makes excellent use of both the rationale of jurists for the outlawry of aggressive war and the best thinking of students of international relations with respect to the way power and security work in a world organized around the primacy of sovereign states, but newly afflicted with the rise of non-state actors... This book deserves the widest possible reading. - from the Foreword, Richard A. Falk, Professor Emeritus of International Law, Princeton University, USA
