Review for Smokescreen by Reference and Research Book News

“This volume on international foreign policy examines the question of political legitimacy in military intervention and explores the ways in which legitimacy, as defined by national actors, most often represents a thin veil covering vested interest and unilateral aggression. The work posits that a more rigorous definition of legitimacy, such as modeled by the United Nations as a mediating force for consensual standards, would prevent humanitarian tragedies that result from illegitimate military intervention. Aranas is an independent foreign policy scholar.”
