Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Reluctant Engagement: U.S. Policy and the International Criminal Court contains the table of contents, preface and the acknowledgment. The book critiques causal ideologies such as American exceptionalism, state sovereignty and laissez-faire capitalism to show how U.S. opposition is driven by pervasive political, legal, historic, military and economic conditioning factors. It shows how U.S. attitudes transcend partisan politics and predicts how the U.S.-ICC relationship will be affected by the economic crisis, shifting international geopolitical power structures, the crisis in the U.S. military, unfolding international human rights law and the politics of change promised by the nascent Obama administration.

Keywords: American exceptionalism; human rights; International criminal court; International Law; U.S. Policy
