International Justice After the Cold War

Essays with Applications

«“In an age of manufactured ‘reality’ and pseudo-journalism, Jokic’s eagle-eyed revisiting of events in the former Yugoslavia gives us a much-needed model of how to resist manipulations serving the cause of war, world domination, and injustice. Jokic’s deep respect for genuine factual and historical understanding is infectious. His sardonic assessment of the moral tragedy engendered by myth-making should embarrass many, while his acerbic wit will capture and sustain readers’ attention. This is a book to treasure.” —Randal Marlin, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Carleton University»

«“International Justice After the Cold War: Essays with Applications presents lucid, provocative, profound, and stimulating essays addressing central themes of ‘international justice’ in ways that challenge the precepts of ‘political correctness’ as never before. This book is indispensable reading for anyone seeking to grasp the rights and wrongs of contemporary world politics.” —Richard Falk, Professor Emeritus in International Law, Princeton University»

«“In this substantial but eminently readable book, Aleksandar Jokic deconstructs traditional notions of just-war theory and transitional justice. He challenges the propriety, morality, and effectiveness of international economic sanctions as a tool of foreign policy, and he provocatively but persuasively argues that under the guise of ‘humanitarian intervention’ in Yugoslavia and ‘responsibility to protect’ in Libya, the United States aimed to decriminalize aggressive war. This work masterfully combines theoretical analysis with applications to make an important contribution to the literature on international justice.” —Marjorie Cohn, Professor Emerita, Thomas Jefferson School of Law»
