American reluctance to join the International Criminal Court illuminates important trends in international security and a central dilemma facing U.S. Foreign policy in the 21st century. The ICC will prosecute individuals who commit egregious international human rights violations such as genocide. The Court is a logical culmination of the global trends toward expanding human rights and creating international institutions. The U.S., which fostered these trends because they served American national interests, initially championed the creation of an ICC. The Court fundamentally represents the triumph of American values in the international arena. Yet the United States now opposes the ICC for fear of constraints upon America's ability to use force to protect its national interests. The principal national security and constitutional objections to the Court, which the volume explores in detail, inflate the potential risks inherent in joining the ICC. More fundamentally, they reflect a belief in American exceptionalism that is unsustainable in today's world. Court opponents also underestimate the growing salience of international norms and institutions in addressing emerging threats to U.S. national interests. The misguided assessments that buttress opposition to the ICC threaten to undermine American leadership and security in the 21st century more gravely than could any international institution.

Whether the International Criminal Court is seen as a necessary, inevitable instrument for justice and peace in our world, or a cleverly designed mechansim for the destruction of national sovereignty-especially the sovereignty of the United States-this book needs to be read by political and military leaders alike. Future military operations will increasingly involve coalitions, non-governmental agencies, non-national armed forces, and international structures. As a result, our future national military strategy will be confronted increasingly with theoretical and practical issues of national sovereignty vs. international governance. The creation of the ICC brings these issues into sharp focus. America's political and military leaders need to explore in detail how an international entity such as the ICC might impact on our legitimate national interests. This book will help. -- Lt. Gen. Walter F. Ulmer, U.S. Army (retired) The collection of 14 essays from distinguished diplomats, security specialists, political scientists, judges, and jurists ranges widely over the historical roots of the ICC; the relation between the U.S. and ICC; the difficult relation between criminal justice and conflict resolution; and finally the Court's impact on international criminal law and the percieved threat which might be posed to the integrity of global law if, in the end US ratification is withheld. The anthology contains a number of impressive contributions. Rusi Journal, (Royal United Services Institute) This is a succinct, but comprehensive assesment of the U.S. position on the ICC. The prominent contributors serve up a rich potpourri of authoritative analyses of the future relationship between the ICC and its current No.1 critic.
