'If I had the power to do so, I would make this book compulsory reading for all who exercise political power in our world today Instead, I will keep my fingers crossed that it will be read by as many members of Congress and of the current US administration as possible, and by a wide cross-section of policy analysts, diplomats, academics and human rights defenders.' - Mary Robinson, Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
Wars on Terrorism and Iraq provides a timely and critical analysis of the impact of the wars on terrorism and Iraq on human rights particularly internationally, as well as related tensions between unilateralism and multilateralism in US foreign policy. The distinguished contributors examine the consequences for international relations and world order of the traditional standard bearer for human rights and democracy (the United States) appearing not to be championing the rule of law and negotiated conflict resolution. The authors also suggest effective policies to promote greater fulfilment of human rights in order to achieve peaceful accord within nations, and stability internationally.

"'If I had the power to do so, I would make this book compulsory reading for all who exercise political power in our world today! Instead, I will keep my fingers crossed that it will be read by as many members of Congress and of the current US administration as possible, and by a wide cross-section of policy analysts, diplomats, academics and human rights defenders.'-Mary Robinson, Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights; 'This contains much useful analysis for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates studying US foreign policy. Given the topicality of the subject matter, there are few directly competing books.'-Fraser Cameron, EU Policy Centre, Brussels; 'This book contains specialized material that might be useful to advanced fourth year undergraduates preparing research papers and would be useful to postgraduates and students in law schools (or equivalent) and public affairs schools. It would be highly useful to researchers on United States government policy in relation to multinational cooperation and to literate policy makers. I know of no text that deals with US policy in the way this book does.'-Emeritus Professor Leon Gordenker; 'Perhaps because it reflects a longer gestation, this book collects some of the most provocative and thoughtful reflections on the world after September 11th to have come out of the academy since that fateful day. It encompasses a uniquely wide spectrum of opinion"
