Praise for the hardback edition:
Shortlisted for the 2008 C.B. Macpherson Prize by the Canadian Political Science Association
'a well-written theoretical and normative study, (…) this book will interest scholars in international relations, philosophy, peace studies and international law. Summing up: Recommended.' - F.S. Pearson, Choice
'In this elegantly written, carefully argued and sophisticated book, Catherine Lu offers a novel approach to the problem of humanitarian intervention. This is an original and timely contribution to an urgent and pressing topic.' - Kok-Chor Tan, Philosophy, University of Pennsylvania, USA
'Lu successfully approaches the [topic of intervention] in a novel and innovative manner that is highly thought provoking and well structured (…) A book that is well worth taking the time and effort to read, and will prove to be an excellent resource to students and academics alike.' - Taryn Shepperd, Journal of International Political Theory (formerly Politics and Ethics Review)
Contemporary scenes of politically induced humanitarian catastrophe have prompted calls for the international community to intervene in defence of our common humanity, yet intervention continues to be a contested practice in a world of states. Tapping insights and controversies from feminist political theory, Lu argues that contemporary debates about the ethics of intervention in world politics are disciplined by competing models of the public/private distinction, a valuable organizing construct for interrogating the agency and responsibilities of different agents, the proper structure of their relationship with each other, and the legitimacy of current interventionary practices. This paperback edition includes a new afterword focusing on the Responsibility to Protect doctrine, and the ethical and political challenges it poses to diverse public and private agents engaged in interventions for purposes of human protection. This includes states and the United Nations, private military and security companies, and the international humanitarian aid regime.
