|Author:||J. D Armstrong, Theo Farrell, Bice Maiguashca||Language:||English|
|Publication Year:||2006||Title:||Force and Legitimacy in World Politics|
|War is invariably accompanied by debate, if t controversy, over the legitimacy of using force. Alongside the longstanding state practice of justifying use of force is the increasing codification of legal rules on the use of force. In this volume a leading group of international authorities consider the issues surrounding the legitimation of force from several distinct disciplinary perspectives, including political science, law, history and philosophy. In particular, they examine the underlying question of whether and how international society's traditional rms of sovereignty and n-intervention can coexist both with the new rm of humanitarian intervention and with an increasingly hegemonial (if t 'imperial') role played by the United States. What is the difference between 'legality' and 'legitimacy'? Is the latter a truly universal concept or mainly a Western one? Are earlier ideas about 'just war' still relevant?|
