Summary
"This updated edition takes a critical look at the way in which human rights issues have been brought to the fore in international affairs. Now covering the invasion of Iraq - as well as Afghanistan, Bosnia, Somalia, Kosovo and East Timor - this is an account of the West's new policy of interventionism. David Chandler asks why the West can now prioritise the rights of individuals over the traditional rights of state sovereignty, and why this shift has happened so quickly."--BOOK JACKET
