Victors' Justice is an articulate polemic against the manipulation of international penal law as an instrument of Western power. Zolo's key thesis is that contemporary international law functions as a two-track system: a made-to-measure law for the hegemons and their allies, on the one hand, and a punitive regime for the losers and the disadvantaged, on the other.
