Blood, Power and Bedlam

Violations of International Criminal Law in Post-Colonial Africa

Series:

Christopher W. Mullins and Dawn L. Rothe

Blood, Power, and Bedlam examines the etiology of violations of international criminal law in four post-colonial African states. With a particular focus on genocide and crimes against humanity, an integrated theory is produced and historical, political, economic, and structural aspects are explored. The book’s main intent is an analysis of the worst crimes humans commit and how, in the cases examined, they arise out of a post-colonial environment. Attention is given to existing or potential applications of international social control.
