Point of attack : preventive war, international law, and global welfare

Author: John Yoo
Publisher: New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2014] ©2014
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
'Point of Attack' argues that the time has come to replace the international rules of war. Current law permits nations to resort to force only in self-defence or under UN authority, which perversely allows mass civilian killings, civil wars, weapons proliferation, and terrorism to run rampant. A new approach should allow the great powers to intervene when a war would benefit global welfare more than the costs.

Abstract:

'Point of Attack' argues that the time has come to replace the international rules of war. Current law permits nations to resort to force only in self-defence or under UN authority, which perversely allows mass civilian killings, civil wars, weapons proliferation, and terrorism to run rampant. A new approach should allow the great powers to intervene when a war would benefit global welfare more than the costs.
