Lang, Anthony E., Beattie, Amanda Russell


This book explores the status and function of rules, broadly defined, in relation to the use of military force and international security. In doing so, it focuses on four substantive topics:· Torture and Terrorism· Collective Security· Technology and Warfare· Laws of War and the International Criminal CourtThe book, and the project more generally, arises from the following questions:· Why are rules relating to international security so contested?· What function do rules - legal, moral and prudential - play in decisions to use military force?· Are rules more effective when they are codified? Or are they more effective when they remain "informal"?· How and why do rules evolve?· Which global agents should be involved in shaping the rules governing the use of force?The book does not provide a final answer as to what rules ought to govern global security, but it will move scholars, activists, and policy makers toward a greater appreciation of what rules can and cannot do.This wide-ranging volume will be of great interest to students of international law, international security and IR theory.Lang, Anthony E. is the author of 'War, Torture and Terrorism: Rethinking the Rules of International Security', published 2009 under ISBN 9780415465229 and ISBN 0415465222.
