'This book shows the author's astute understanding of contemporary issues of law, democracy and international order, and is essential for any complete library on this topic.' John Allison, ACUNS 'So it is rare that in a field as vast as international relations, a book is published and immediately thereafter its key theses are tested on the world stage. Yet that is the fate of Ku and Jacobsen's well crafted Democratic Accountability and the Use of Force in International Law, for no sooner were the galleys checked than the Bush Administration set its sights on the use of force against the Saddam regime in Iraq.' Australian Journal of International Affairs '... offers a valuable analysis of a difficult multidimensional subject.' Common Law World Review
