Abstract

Drawing on over two decades of research, Thomas G. Weiss aims to provide a persuasive introduction to the theory and practice of humanitarian intervention in the modern world. Weiss examines the normative evolution of what is increasingly known as the “responsibility to protect” in the context of the global war on terror, UN debates, and such international actions as Libya. Henry Radice notes that the book succeeds best as a plea for R2P to become more than the latest rhetorical alibi for inaction in the face of atrocity.
