Terrorist attacks, including those of September 11, 2001, on the United States and subsequent attacks in Asia and Europe, have killed or injured thousands and caused massive social and economic disruption. Those grave threats to peace and security have led to increased efforts at the national and international level to prevent the harm such threats can cause. Although punishing perpetrators and assisting victims after the fact are essential and may deter attacks, the highest level of protection comes from preventing harm. The Best Defense? Legitimacy and Preventive Force provides a practical guide to identifying and considering the issues relevant to the preventive uses of force.This book, which represents the conclusions of the Stanford Task Force on Preventive Force, raises critical questions surrounding the use of preventive force: What are the dangers and limitations of relying on preventive force in dealing with security threats? How does the meaning of “preventive force” differ from “preemption” and other uses of force considered lawful? Do alternatives exist to the legal standards traditionally viewed as governing the uses of preventive force? When, if ever, would states be justified in using preventive force without U.N. Security Council approval? What standards and procedures could enhance the legitimacy of preventive force?The book describes current threats and reviews the extent to which international organizations and states regard them as justifying increased reliance on preventive force. It examines the different types of preventive actions currently used in international practice and evaluates these actions in light of United Nations standards. It also explains and illustrates the difficult but useful concept of the “legitimacy” of such actions from both a legal and a moral perspective. Encouraging this type of appraisal, the book concludes, would enhance the prospect that states that Books Books ~~ Political Science & Government~~ General The-Best-Defense-Legitimacy-and-Preventive-Force~~Abraham-D-Sofaer Hoover Institution Press A practical guide to identifying and considering the issues relevant to uses of preventive force, in the hope that such uses of force, if undertaken, will advance national and international security and the purposes of the United Nations Charter.
