Peter Berkowitz of the Hoover Institution has a new book out, entitled Israel and the Struggle Over the International Laws of War. The book, which is very brief–more of a long essay, really–is an impassioned critique of the abuse of the laws of war by Israel’s critics in both international organizations and in the academy. Peter runs the Hoover Institution’s Koret-Taube Task Force on National Security and Law, of which I am several other people associated with this blog are members. He’s also–full disclosure–one my closest personal friends. He took a break from his almost unspeakable travel schedule yesterday to stop by Brookings and chat about his book.
