Professors Conor Gearty and Joanna Bourke launch 'War on Terror', the latest publication from the world-famous Oxford Amnesty Lecture Series.
The term 'War on Terror' covers a mass of interlinked topics. Here, an outstanding group of authors and academics dissect them from ethical, legal, political, economic and historical perspectives in essays of abiding relevence.
This is a powerful contribution to current debates about immigration, multi culturalism and foreign policy, the politics of the Middle East and the Iraq War, human rights in Islam and the West and the ethics of intervention.
Conor Gearty is Professor of Law at the LSE, specialising in human rights; Joanna Bourke is Professor of History at Birkbeck College.
