International lawyer Philippe Sands has a unique insider's view of the global justice process. Lawless World is his acclaimed account of the origins, development and crucial importance of international law, covering human rights, war, torture and the environment.
Now, in this updated edition with a shocking new chapter, you can get the full story of how the US and UK governments are riding roughshod over international agreements on human rights, war, torture and the environment - the very laws they put in place. Here Sands looks at why global rules matter for all of us. And he powerfully makes the case for preserving them ... before justice becomes history.
2006 edition reissued in 2016
