9780141974835: Crimes Against Humanity: The Struggle For Global Justice

In this new edition of Crimes Against Humanity: The Struggle for Global Justice, Geoffrey Robertson QC explains why we must hold political and military leaders accountable for genocide, torture and mass murder.

He shows how human rights standards can be enforced against cruel governments, armies and multi-national corporations. This seminal work now contains a critical perspective on recent events, such as the invasion of Iraq, the abuses at Abu Ghraib, the killings in Darfur, the death of Milosevic and the trial of Saddam Hussein.

Cautiously optimistic about ending impunity, but unsparingly critical of diplomats, politicians, Bush lawyers and others who evade international rules, this book will provide further guidance to a movement which aims to make justice predominant in world affairs.

'A beacon of clear-sighted commitment to the humanitarian cause ... impassioned ... exemplary ... seminal'
  Observer

'States are the biggest bullies in the world. In this book, Geoffrey Robertson shows how they can be tamed'
  Mail on Sunday

'A devastating critique of the inadequate response of the international community to violations of basic freedoms ... a formidable achievement'
  Evening Standard

'His arguments are exceptionally clear ... simple and lucid prose'
  Sunday Telegraph

Geoffrey Robertson QC is founder and head of Doughty Street Chambers, the largest human rights practice in the UK.
