Phil Taylor celebrates the life of York University Professor Michael Mandel, law professor extraordinaire, anti-war activist, promoter of Yiddish culture, and lover of classical music. Phil discusses Mandel's life, tragically cut short by a rare heart disease at age 65, with international human rights lawyer, David Jacobs, and Osgoode Hall law professor Harry Glasbeek. Particular focus was paid to Mandel's book, "How America Gets Away With Murder", and Mandel's attempt to lay charges before Carla Del Ponte at the International Criminal Court against Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Jean Chrétien, and leaders of other NATO countries for their illegal attack on the former Yugoslavia.
