Wars on Terrorism and Iraq: Human Rights, Unilateralism, and U.S. Foreign Policy
Wars on Terrorism and Iraq provides a timely and critical analysis of the impact of the Iraq war and the war on terrorism upon human rights, particularly internationally, as well as an examination of related tensions between unilateralism and multilateralism in U.S. foreign policy. The distinguished contributors examine the consequences for international relations and world order when the traditional standard bearer for human rights and democracy, the United States, apparently fails to champion the rule of law and negotiated conflict resolution. The authors also suggest effective policies to promote greater fulfillment of human rights in order to achieve peaceful accord within nations and stability internationally. Thomas G. Weiss is a presidential professor of political science at the Graduate Center and director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.
