Description

Danilo Zolo considers Carl Schmitt's maxim in the context of the "humanitarian war" waged against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in the Spring of 1999 by 19 NATO countries. He offers a political, legal and philosophical reflection on an extraordinary display of Western power and its present and future impact on the global system of international politics. Zolo's account of the war is located within the context of the irresistible drive of globalization which he argues brings economic, financial and military, ecological and ethnic-religious turbulence in its wake. Not only the future of the Balkan region, he suggests, is at stake here, but the fate of international law, the future role of the United Nations and the political destiny of Europe.

Table of Contents

Imperial Mapping and Balkan Nationalism; Why the War was Fought; A War against Law; An International "Political Justice"; The Consequences of the War; From Kosovo Polje to Seattle - historico-political chronology 1389-1999.
