This book examines humanitarian interventions in the post-Cold War era in the context of the development of global capitalism. It argues that it is often our duty to use force to uphold human rights, but that attempts to promote and protect these rights can unintentionally contribute to the perpetuation of poverty and poverty-related problems.
