US exceptionalism and the ICC

Understanding US opposition to the International Criminal Court was the first project (2003-2007) in my American exception series.  It had two main aims: first, to examine how the creation of the International Criminal Court impacted on the rules, norms and institutions of international society; second, to understand why the United States opposed the International Criminal Court.
