Review quote

If criminology is to have any relevance in the era of globalization, it must more directly address the vitally important issues of state crime and international social control. Dawn Rothe and Chris Mullins have made an outstanding contribution to this project with their incisive and critical analysis of the International Criminal Court. -- Ron Kramer, Western Michigan University It is a very readable and well-written introduction to the question of what international criiminal justice is after all about...The authors also provide a refreshing look into the American criminological community's soul when it comes to the attitude of the current US administration and the population in general. International Criminal Law Review The chapters, ideas, and information presented in them appear to logically flow from one idea to the next. The manuscript is an excellent review of the problems and opportunities presented by the International Criminal Court. The manuscript is well written, clear, and appropriately documented. The historical sections are well crafted. Instructors in the fields of international law, international organizations, and human rights will find this book particularly useful. -- Jeffrey Ian Ross, Editor of Controlling State Crime and Varieties of State Crime and Its Control editor of Controlling State Crime and Varietieshow more
