The book includes an analysis of the characters of Adolph Eichmann and Heinrich Himmler. It moves on to look at the role played by some of Africa’s war criminals and also offers portraits of alleged war criminals from the Western world, including Henry Kissinger, George W. Bush, Ariel Sharon and Tony Blair. The book also tracks the wars, genocide and subsequent international criminal law trials of suspects in Cambodia, Africa and the former Yugoslavia. In its final chapter it asks the question: Can human rights be pursued by making war?
