The Case Against War.  This book is of special interest for teachers and students of law and is unique in its field. Since the opposition to the war in Iraq has been so dominant, both supporters and opponents of Britain's involvement are interested in the legality of the action. The book is also of of particualr interest to international lawyers at a time when citizens of the world are increasingly active against war.

The Case Against War covers the entire proceedings of a citizens' tribunal held on 11th October 2002 in London. Further opinions are included from January, March, June and July 2003. Also included is the full documentation of the CND case for a judicial review. The Case Against War comprises the only full published collection of legal opinion on Britain's participation in the Iraq war.
