Abstract

Through a careful exploration of two centuries of sources, Mark Swatek-Evenstein’s A History of Humanitarian Intervention demonstrates how advocates of "humanitarian intervention” have created historical narratives to support their agenda. He comprehensively reviews the relevant incidents and the writings of international law publicists, undermining the persistent search for historical precedents that has been a staple of the scholarship while at the same time constructively explaining the different legal and diplomatic worlds in which those incidents took place.
