The use of rape as a deliberate tactic of war is a serious human rights issue. This ground-breaking book is the first to analyse its use as an act of war against civilians and international progress away from tacit acceptance to active rejection of this violation of international law. Powerful testimonies of victims are included, making this a much-needed volume for academic and professional communities.
