Examines the evolution and continued applicability of the corpus, both conventional and customary, that constitutes the law of war. Presents a case study of the British suppression of the Mau Mau insurgency in 1950s Kenya, a conflict with particular resonance today. Some of the more relevant characteristics of the “emergency,” as it was called, include the clash between Western and non-Western cultures and an initially asymmetric fight between conventional security forces and loosely organized, poorly equipped insurgents. The genesis of this study is the public discourse, both explicit and implicit, asserting the possibility that the Global War on Terrorism may require new rules and new law-of-war prescripts.
