About this book

This book examines US recourse to military force in the post-9/11 era. In particular, it evaluates the extent to which the Bush and Obama administrations viewed legitimizing the greater use-of-force as a necessary solution to thwart the security threat presented by global terrorist networks and WMD proliferation.

Reviews

'This well-written volume is a timely reminder that the attitude of the greatest military power on earth towards the legal regime on the use of force remains as relevant today as it has ever been. Highly recommended for all those seeking to understand how hegemonic powers conduct their foreign relations as well as for those wanting to keeping abreast of ongoing contestation surrounding the interpretation of the Charter provisions on use-of-force.' - Shirley Scott, University of New South Wales, Australia

'Continuity or change? This accessible, salutary, timely and engaging account of American engagement with the rules on the use of force, under Bush and Obama, offers vital insights at a time of obvious and increasing challenge.' - Philippe Sands, University College London, UK

'Warren and Bode have produced a timely, well-written book that documents the continuity that defined the United States' approach to international law and the use-of-force over the last decade. It should be required reading for anyone interested in foreign policy and international relations but more generally for anyone with an interest in how the world has operated since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.' - Sarah Kreps, Cornell University, US
