Reviews

"The Libyan intervention has been greeted as demonstrating the arrival of R2P. This excellent collection critically dissects these claims. Recommended for all those interested in the shifting debates concerning international intervention, law, ethics and humanitarian action."

- David Chandler, University of Westminster, UK

"This collection's incisive, critical analyses will set the terms of the debate over the 2011 Libya intervention, as well as shine much-needed light on the politics and future of the 'Responsibility to Protect' in Africa and around the world."

- Adam Branch, San Diego State University, USA
