This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the politics of
war crimes trials. It provides a systematic and theoretically
rigorous examination of whether these trials are used as tools for
political consolidation or whether justice is their primary
purpose. The consideration of cases begins with the trial of
Charles I of England and goes through the presidency of George W.
Bush, including the trials of Saddam Hussein and those arising from
the War on Terror. The book concludes that political consolidation
is the primary concern of these trials - a point that runs contrary
to the popular perception of the trials and their stated
justification. Through the consideration of war crimes trials, this
book makes a contribution to our understanding of power and
conflict resolution and illuminates the developmental path of war
