Mark Dubowitz: "Courting Justice" Book Review

"Courting Justice:
Landmark Supreme Court Case Can Offer Justice for U.S. Victims of Iranian Terror"

Terrorism and international relations are really a hot topic these days, especially during an election year. Mark Dubowitz's book offers insight into this important issue. This book outlines how the United States government & international partners entered into an agreement with the Iranian government where sanctions on the country would be eased in exchange for the country backing off on some of it's nuclear weapons development. While the intent of this deal was to ease the issue, it has only made it worse. Iran has a history of committing acts of terror against Americans. 

Dubowitz goes in depth in his book about this deal gone horribly wrong and notes how Americans who have been victims are supposed to be compensated. Subjects pertaining to international law can be hard reads, but this book is not the case. The language is professional, yet easy for the average reader to understand. For some one like myself who focused on international affairs in college, I would love to see it used in college and even high school classrooms
