About the Authors

The lectures will provide various perspectives on the subject for anyone interested in international criminal law--from specialists to non-specialists.

    • Leading experts consider the development of international criminal law from WWII to date
    • Perspectives include both historical and legal aspects
    • Original and provocative work from contributors including Cherie Booth, Richard Overy and James Crawford

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Unlike many edited collections, From Nuremberg to the Hague is a tightly structured book...Overall, in just 192 pages, From Nuremberg to the Hague offers a concise and thoughtful overview of the origins, current state, and unclear prospects for teh development of an international system for the prosecution and punishment of state crimes. As such, the book is an excellent prospect as a teaching tool, particularly for graduate and advanced undergraduate classes." - Raymond Michalowski, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff
