'The genocide in Rwanda showed us how terrible the consequences of inaction can be in the face of mass murder. But the conflict in Kosovo raised equally important questions about the consequences of action without international consensus and clear legal authority. On the one hand, is it legitimate for a regional organization to use force without a UN mandate? On the other, is it permissible to let gross and systematic violations of human rights, with grave humanitarian consequences, continue unchecked?' (United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan). This book is a comprehensive, integrated discussion of 'the dilemma' of humanitarian intervention. Written by leading analysts of international politics, ethics, and law, it seeks, among other things, to identify strategies that may, if not resolve, at least reduce the current tension between human rights and state sovereignty. This volume is an invaluable contribution to the debate on all aspects of this vital global issue.

Review:

'The papers in this volume offer an informative analysis of humanitarian intervention with real intellectual coherence. The interdisciplinarity of the contributions, the sensitivity to the phenomenon of weak states, and the recognition of the tensions between human rights and the war on terrorism, combine to make this book both timely and welcome' Charles R. Beitz, Princeton University

'This is a powerful and satisfying book. This superb set of essays provides a way to synthesize differing approaches from international law, moral philosophy and politics into a framework to deal with such complex and shattering events as Rwanda, Kosovo and the aftermath of September 11.' Antonia Chayes, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

'A learned and stimulating collection of very fine essays on the political, moral and legal aspects of humanitarian intervention.' Stanley Hoffmann, Harvard University

'Humanitarian intervention lies at the fault line between the international system's commitments to state autonomy and integrity and to the protection of human rights. These original essays are an important contribution to policy clarification and to scholarship.' W. Michael Reisman, Yale Law School

'For those wondering whether humanitarian intervention has a future after September 11, this outstanding collection is essential reading.' Nicholas J. Wheeler, University of Wales

'These essays illuminate the ethical, legal and political conditions under which humanitarian intervention can be justified, while revealing the dangers and complexities of such force.' Foreign Affairs

'Humanitarian Intervention comprises many nuanced debates and contrasting points of view that cannot be summarized in a short review. It is an excellent book and I recommend it highly to all those interested in humanitarianism.' International Affairs

'This anthology should set a standard because of its comprehensive treatment of the subject - among the most current and most controversial in international law - and because of obstacles to agreeing about legitimate intervention.' Library Journal

'This is an outstanding volume, rich in detail, commendable well referenced and very engaging.' Journal of Humanitarian Assistance 'Holzgrefe and Keohane have compiled a very readable, accessible and truly multi-disciplinary volume that both summarizes and spurs today's discussions about humanitarian intervention. ... the authors make cross-references to each other's views, turning the volume into a true unity without losing the diversity of opinions and perspectives on its topic.' Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management

'... the book provides a comprehensive and important multidisciplinary debate on this contentious issue.' Common Law World Review

Book Description:

Rwanda, Iraq, and Kosovo have stimulated ethical, legal and political debates about humanitarian intervention - the use of military force to end human rights violations in other states. Leading analysts address key issues, including the implications of the war against terrorism for humanitarian intervention. Of interest to students and researchers.
