"Saito has produced a synthesis that is thought-provoking and challenging, and it provides a welcome attempt to place the contemporary moment in the "war on terror" into a much longer historical frame. Most of all, like all good critical scholarship, scholars and students can look to this book as a way to interrogate one's commitments about the American Project."-The Law and Politics Book Review,
" is a pointed look at why the United States' frequent - if selective - disregard of international law and institutions is met with such high levels of approval, or at least complacency, by the American public."-Los Angeles Daily Journal,
"A must read for those concerned about human dignity, justice, freedom from violence, and the rule of law in an increasingly interdependent world, Meeting the Enemy challenges the reader to consider the abnegative consequences of an exceptionalism openly embraced by elites in the Bush Administration and still fostered by an Obama Administration that is partly conflicted between rhetoric and deeds."
-Jordan J. Paust, author of "Beyond the Law: The Bush Administration's Unlawful Responses in the "War" on Terror"
"This book will help readers understand the United State's contradictory and often shocking role in the international legal community. A violator of international law from the day of its declaration of 'independence, ' America, as Saito boldly points out, is indeed the enemy to colonized people within and beyond its borders."
-Sharon H. Venne, Chief Negotiator, Akaitcho Dene First Nation
"Much has been written about the theme of American exceptionalism. Few works, however, possess the richness, range and depth of Saito's superb and timely book, which provides new and disturbing insight into the origins and enduring character of this exceptionalism--and its consequences for America and the world."
-Antony Anghie, SJ Quinney School of Law, University of Utah
