Critically assesses the politics of the ICC in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Based on 650 interviews over 11 years.
"Phil Clark has written an epochal work on the ICC. He allows the facts and the evidence to speak without political varnish. Clark appropriately indicts the ICC for being an imperial project that's tone deaf about its deficits. However, he pleads for deep reform and correctly rejects the arguments for throwing the baby out with the bathwater." Makau Mutua, State University of New York
