" Means to an End is a well-researched and timely contribution to the debate over America's proper relationship to the International Criminal Court. Rigorous in its arguments and humane in its conclusions, the volume is an indispensable guide for scholars and policymakers alike." Madeleine K. Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State
"With this volume, the authors make an important contribution to the ongoing debate over U.S. involvement with the International Criminal Court. As our country continues to seek ways in which to hold perpetrators of atrocities to account, their analysis and argument will play a key role in the thinking in this area." Senator John McCain, (R-Ariz.)
"Two of our nation's leading authorities on preventing atrocities have joined to make a convincing argument that closer cooperation with the International Criminal Court will help promote human rights and the values on which America was founded." Angelina Jolie, co-chair, Jolie-Pitt Foundation
"Because so much of our political commentary at present is overheated and inflammatory, calm, reasoned analysis often seems in short supply. One turns to Means to an End with genuine appreciation for the reasoned wisdom on display. Whether one favors a closer relationship between the ICC and the United States or not, the authors rehearse the pros and cons in a compelling, fair-minded way that earns the reader's respect. Anyone interested in whether the ICC as presently constituted fulfills or violates U.S interests should read this book." Jean Bethke Elshtain, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago
