Unjust Justice free pdf Such is the praise for Unjust Justice by the eminent French philosopher Chantal Delsol. Now available in paperback this book offers a devastating critique of progressives' relentless quest for "international law" and "international justice". This purportedly humanitarian project represents a way for the Western world to do penance for its missionary, colonial, and imperial past. But Delsol shows how deeply flawed it is in all respects - in its premises, means, and ends. In fact, the author demonstrates, the ideals and institutions of international law reflect the very moralistic dogmatism and inquisitorial spirit that the Enlightenment originally sought to vanquish. Delsol deflates the pretensions of contemporary progressives, unmasks they hypocrisies, and exposes the logic of they tyrannical methods. In so doing, she defends those real human and political values that are threatened by the zeal for international law. Unjust Justice completes Delsol's remarkable trilogy of studies devoted to examining "the spirit of late modernity." The First two works Icarus Fallen and The Unlearned Lessons of the Twentieth Century , are also available from ISI Books as part of the Crosscurrents series
