Blood, Power, and Bedlam examines the etiology of violations of international criminal law in four post-colonial African states. With a particular focus on genocide and crimes against humanity, an integrated theory is produced and historical, political, economic, and structural aspects are explored. The book's main intent is an analysis of the worst crimes humans commit and how, in the cases examined, they arise out of a post-colonial environment. Attention is given to existing or potential applications of international social control.
"This book is a powerful analysis of a variety of forms of collective violence in Africa. The authors provide a compelling account of the etiology and enactment of some of the worst violences humans commit against each other - genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. This book is a major contribution to the field of criminology. Scholars of war, peace, and international law would also find Mullins and Rothe's book of great interest."
