Product Details


“Beautifully written and utterly compelling.” The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Erna Paris takes us on a compelling journey into the dramatic events behind the creation of the International Criminal Court. The court symbolizes the growing global determination to end impunity for the perpetrators of atrocities. Yet this vision of universal justice has been anathema to those in Washington who disdain any international oversight of their exceptional power. As Paris vividly demonstrates, this contempt underscores the Bush administration’s decision to combat terrorism by flouting the most basic legal constraints.” -Kenneth Roth, executive director, Human Rights Watch

“Paris masters an enormous amount of historical detail with intelligent arguments and captivating prose. . . . A sound introduction to a complex topic.” Montreal Gazette
