Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works.  In this episode, she speaks with Allan A. Ryan, author of "Yamashita's Ghost: War Crimes, MacArthur's Justice, and Command Accountability." 

As the book jacket notes, "Allan A. Ryan reopens the case against Yamashita to illuminate crucial questions and controversies that have surrounded his trial and conviction, but also to deepen our understanding of broader contemporary issues -- especially the limits of command accountability -- that first emerged from that tribunal," 

 

Professor Ryan clerked for Supreme Court Justice Byron R. White and now teaches the law of war at Boston College Law School and Harvard University.
