M. Cherif Bassiouni, A Man of Many Flags

M Cherif Bassiouni was a towering figure in international law. He was personally connected to some of the most historically relevant moments of the past century: the Suez War; the Camp David Accords; the fall of Muammar el-Qaddafi in Libya and the establishment of the International Criminal Court. A true global citizen – raised in Egypt, educated in Europe and emigrated to the United States – his life cut across cultures and religions. This fascinating memoir, titled "A Man of Many Flags: Memoirs of a War Crimes Investigator", gives an immediate and personal eye-witness account of the operation of international events during a tumultuous period.
