Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754674037, Hardcover)"Terrorism, War and International Law" analyses the legality of the use of force by the US, the UK and their NATO allies against Afghanistan in 2001. Challenging the main ground for resorting to force, namely self-defence under Article 51 of the United Nations' Charter, on a number of issues, this book also examines the wider context, including comparable Security Council resolutions in historic situations as well as modern instances where force has been used, such as against Iraq in 2003 and against Lebanon in 2006. As well as making the case against the legality of the use of force, this book addresses wider questions such as the meaning of 'terrorism' in international law, the changing nature of conflict in the twenty-first century, the evolution of limitations on the resort to force from antiquity through to 2001, in addition to considering the implications for the use of force in the future.
