" Geoffrey Robertson QC tells the dramatic story of how the human rights idea has come to dominate world politics, dating in the decision to bomb Serbia for its crimes against humanity. Identifying a shift from diplomacy to law as a crucial post-Cold War development, Robertson reveals what else we can expect from demand for global Justice......... Crimes Against Humanity is the first work to weave disparate strands of history, philosophy, international law and politics into a comprehensible and engrossing account of this increasingly significant movement. Robertson reveals, with passion and position, how human rights have located and penetrated the legal armour of the sovereign state, providing a justification for the international community -- with or without the UN -- to bring tyrants and torturers to heal. He explains how the crime against humanity, first defined at Nuremberg, has become the key which unlocks the closed door of State sovereignty, and holds political leaders responsible for the evils they visit upon human kind." -- from the front fold over panel blurb.
