Summary
"This collection of scholarly and critical essays about the legal aspects of the Vietnam War explores the crimes of aggression committed by the United States against North Vietnam: war crimes by bombing civilian targets like schools and hospitals and by using napalm, cluster bombs, and Agent Orange; crimes against humanity by moving large parts of the population to so called "Strategic Hamlets"; and genocide. International Lawyer Richard Falk, who was able to observe these act in North Vietnam in 1968, uses International Law to show how they occurred. This book brings together essays he has written on the Vietnam War and its relationship to international law, American foreign policy, and the global world order. Falk argues that only a stronger adherence to International Law can save the world from such future tragedies and create a sustainable world order"--
