Summary
"'Whoever invokes humanity is trying to cheat.' In this book, Danilo Zolo considers Carl Schmitt's maxim in the context of the 'humanitarian war' waged against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in the spring of 1999 by nineteen NATO countries. Published in English for the first time, Danilo Zoto's erudite and disturbing book is a political, legal and philosophical reflection on an extraordinary display of Western Power and its present and future impact on the global system of international relations. Zolo's account of the war is located within the context of the irrestible drive of globalization which he argues brings economic, financial and military, ecological and thnic-religious turbulence in its wake. It is not only the future of the Balkan region at stake here, he suggests, but the fate of international law, the future role of the United Nations and the political destiny of Europe."--Back cover
