Summary
In recent years the "war on terror" led by president George W. Bush brought a wave of attention to the issues of human rights violations committed, in this case, by the US beyond its territory. More broadly, the activities of the US and efforts to avoid state accountability aroused conceptual and practical controversies concerning the exercise of international human rights laws and treaties beyond a nation's borders. Da Costa (international law, U. of Roehampton, UK) focuses on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the European Convention on Human Rights, and the Convention Against Torture--offering history and background as well as detailed treatment of cases. Martinus Nijhoff is an imprint of Brill. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
