From the Publisher"A fantastic book - at once a serious contribution to legal theory and a fascinating read. 'The exception makes the rule' we say - Johns turns that around. How does law make, un-make and manage the exception? It has become routine to find war in the filigrees of peace. Johns finds the managerial work of law in all that seems beyond its reach - the illegal, the political, the economic and the barbaric. Johns proposes a powerful new agenda for research and a caution about the common wish that all might be well were law finally 'brought to bear.' Law she tells us, is already there.”
Manley O. Hudson Professor of Law and Director of the Institute for Global Law and Policy, Harvard Law School
"Beautifully written and full of sparkling examples, this book reconfigures the landscape of international legal thought in profound and irrevocable ways."
London School of Economics and Political Science
"This magisterial book points the way toward a new future for international legal studies. Erudite yet original, bold yet meticulously defended, this is a text that is both critical and hopeful, in the highest sense of both terms."
Jack G. Clarke Professor of Law in Far East Legal Studies, Cornell University Law School
"An outstandingly rich, nuanced and well written critical treatment of the way in which international law’s treatment of conditions as marginal plays a significant role in the understanding and structuring of such conditions."
