Peter Berkowitz, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and holder of a PhD in political science and a J.D. from Yale, is out with a new book, “Israel and the Struggle Over the International Laws of War.” The slim volume does not lack intellectual heft. It is must-reading for those interested in international law, Israel and multilateral international bodies. Peter agreed to answer a number of questions about the book. The depth and thoughtfulness of his answers are representative of his body of work, which ranges from political philosophy to Zionism.
