    Abstract This book focuses on the problematic relationship between legality and legitimacy when a nation (or nations) intervene in the work of other nations. The book brings together a wide range of contributors with a broad set of cases that consider when such intervention is legitimate even if it isn't legal—and vice versa. Chapters cover humanitarian intervention, nuclear nonproliferation, military intervention, international criminal tribunals, interventions driven by environmental concerns, and the export of democracy. The book argues that while some interventions may not be technically legal, they may well be legitimate (e.g., Kosovo), and also concentrates on establishing the grounds for legitimate intervention. Some cases, like Iraq, fail the test. Transnational intervention by states and international institutions has increased since the globalization wave of the 1990s and especially since 9/11. This book, by focusing on a diverse array of cases, establishes a clear framework for judging the legitimacy of such actions.
