    1. Used the book for my master thesis on humanitarian interventions. It stands out among other similar literature I was using. This topic is an emotionally charged one, and many authors often take sides or legitimize interventions when writing about them. Hehir does not fall into this trap. Although he uses an unusally high amount of sources, his writing is not dry, but easily digestible and to the point. This is THE book to read to introduce oneself with this complex subject.

    2. An excellent overview of the theory and cases of humanitarian intervention. Would recommend this to anyone and everyone who either needs an introduction into the field of humanitarian interventions or are working on an academic research into that field.In addition to the wealth of information offered here, the added benefit is the extremely readable language and very well organized content and suggestions for further research.Excellent book

    3. I've read bits and pieces of this book over a span of years now, and at some point need to sit down and have time to just read it through.Would definitely recommend.
