The United States and International Criminal Tribunals

An Introduction

By Harry M. Rhea

The relationship between the United States and international criminal tribunals dates back to at least World War I. Currently, there are many anti-American criticisms throughout the international legal community concerning the foreign relations policies of the United States - in particular, its position on the International Criminal Court. Written by Harry M. Rhea, an emerging scholar in the field of international criminal justice, this book considers over 150 years of United States policies on international criminal tribunals and the prosecution of international crimes. Relying on archival research, Rhea demonstrates how the United States has remained consistent supporting all multinational and international criminal tribunals without supporting the International Criminal Court. In June 2013 the author, Dr. Harry M. Rhea, was awarded the Roslyn Muraskin Emerging Scholar Award in the US by the Northeastern Assn. of Criminal Justice Sciences in recognition of outstanding scholarly contributions to the advancement of criminal justice within the first five years of his professional career.
